The vision of Go Give Yoga in Appalachia is to bring yoga’s benefits of physical well-being and emotional  healing to the children and the adults who support them in this beautiful and under served area of our country. This area sees some of the poorest socioeconomic and overall health status for children as well as adults. Wolfe County is the unhealthiest county in Kentucky, and Lee is ranked 6th. There is a high average of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, tobacco, drug, and alcohol abuse. What is experienced in childhood has a direct bearing on adulthood.

Beginning in Lee and Wolfe Counties of Kentucky and the surrounding area, we plan to support adult youth workers and mentors in the community by offering training in the use of research tested tools to help empower and educate. By doing so, we can bring hope and change for the future and reduce the perpetuation of Adverse Childhood Experience such as the continued cycle of substance abuse, poverty, and lack of hope for the future. 

By offering yoga classes to impoverished children we hope to break this cycle, strengthening the next generation, and create positive outcomes which help transform future outcome. As we move ahead we will seek volunteers to help teach adults the tools to bring yoga to children in need.
