About the Movement
The Do Good Movement is an organization focused on children’s education promoting self-awareness, self-regulation, philanthropic stewardship, and social-emotional learning through a yoga foundation. Students benefit from this program by learning tools to help relieve stress and anxiety in and out of the classroom as well as create strong minds and bodies through yoga movements and meditation. We pride ourselves in our additional educational components of event planning skills and how to work with different charities to taking yoga off the mat, out of the classroom and impacting the local community and the world around us through our Kindness Karma Project.
