Yoga For Life Las Vegas

Tent #39 of Southern Nevada launched an exciting new program called Yoga For Life Las Vegas. Founded by Jacky Pagone, Yoga For Life Las Vegas targets children and adolescents who are sick, disadvantaged or live with special needs. It offers students the opportunity to use their imagination, visualization, physical abilities and mental focus through yoga to provide a way to improve their ability to relate to others and be strong individuals.

Yoga For Life Las Vegas teaches children how to recognize and manage their emotions, and grow confidence as they learn to move their bodies in ways they previously couldn’t. They learn to take care of and appreciate their bodies, potentially change their relationship with their condition and gain skills in relating to their friends, family and community.

Yoga For Life Las Vegas is a free program available in schools and community centers through a partnership with the City of Las Vegas and Clark County School District. The program started with one class per week at one location and quickly expanded to 8 classes per week at three locations due to the positive results and feedback of the kids, parents and teachers. For the coming year, the program looks to grow and serve 100+ kids.

Yoga for Life Las Vegas is unique as it is the only yoga program in Las Vegas that does not cost a penny for families, schools or facilities. Plus, it is the only program working with children with special needs. Any other tents interested in starting a Yoga For Life program in their city, let’s chat!
