Yoga For Vista Maria Youth

Yoga Vista Maria December 2018.jpg

Since July 2018, YBDF has supported Vista Maria in their mission to deliver innovative care, support, treatment and education to abused and neglected youth and young women, supporting healing, self-esteem, and skills to succeed. The yoga program offered by YBDF has become an integral part of the center’s therapeutic modalities, helping girls and young women heal from trauma and gain independence.

For the traumatized youth of Vista Maria, finding quiet and relaxing is a great challenge. The turmoil of these youths backgrounds in foster care, mental health treatment, and juvenile punishment makes it hard to trust themselves.
