 What is the problem we look to solve?

“Persistent gaps in education and health associated with socioeconomic disadvantage impose enormous burdens on individuals, communities, and societies worldwide. Recent reports estimate that 200 million children fail to reach their full developmental potential by age 5.”

Our solution

Y3 KIDS aims at using mindful movement education to promote healthy brain development. 

We’ve created educational activities based on simple yoga exercises infused with music and games. This program can be easily assimilated into the existing curriculum and will increase the likelihood of the child’s success in future learning. 

In areas where the children don’t speak English, the lessons double as an ESL (english as a second language) class. This detail is useful in locations where tourism is high because a good percentage of the children will end up working in the tourism industry.
