"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future."
Franklin D. Roosevelt
We believe in a world where all kids have the tools they need to achieve balance in life. BEAM Foundation in Calgary strives to be a part of helping every child and teen feel as healthy as possible - physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
By bringing yoga and youth wellness programs to children who may otherwise not have access, we are working to make yoga more accessible in our communities. BEAM Foundation free yoga programming reduces financial and physical barriers to wellness so that today's young people can build lifelong skills in support of mental health and wellness.
Depending on the group's needs, our focus may be on teaching healthy coping mechanisms through breathing and meditation, developing physical strength and motor skills by practicing physical asanas, yoga for children with special needs, or by giving kids a positive, non-competitive environment to relax and connect with others.
