Bright Future Yoga's Vision

Delaware’s regional leader in bringing yoga as a holistic solution to at-risk and marginalized clients.

Yoga provides a focused, safe method that emerges naturally as an integral part of a client’s transition. This is especially effective for populations addressing trauma-based, mental health, and social challenge issues. When children get “labeled” at a young age, it may be difficult for them to see past that label and gain a positive foothold in the midst of chaos, anger, fear, sadness, or aggression.

Yoga methods create a place of introspection and personal reflection where one can go at any time to “break the cycle,” refrain from negative reactions, and form new behaviors on a path to wellness or rehabilitation.

JILL REED, Founder of Bright Future Yoga has been bringing children's yoga to our surrounding schools and communities since 2006. When Jill saw the benefits of yoga and mindfulness in her our life she thought wouldn't it be great to plant the seed of yoga in a child.
