Asana Alphabet™’s founder, Ann Robideaux,traveled to Philadelphia this summer to work with the 65 teens selected for the Philadelphia Youth Network Service “Leaders of Change” program. The program aims to empower Philadelphia teens to not only to develop themselves, but to consider their place in the community and create positive social change through their work during the summer. All of the selected teens are paid for working in this program, which is an extra plus considering some of the other usual teen job options. Ideally, yoga is a way to deepen our connection to the world around us and allow us to become more conscious of our actions. Our yoga day included doing yoga as partners (see the double boat partner photo) and as a group (see the group tree) to facilitate community and connection along with deep relaxation for clearer thinking and to de-stress.
