Yoga and mindfulness are infused into our mission and play a role in all of our projects. The D2C Yoga Initiative draws on scholarly studies indicating an inverse correlation between yoga, meditation, and trauma. In particular, the D2C Yoga Initiative focuses on the ways in which trauma-informed and culturally competent yoga and mindfulness programs can address the short-term and long-term impact of trauma in youth.
D2C offers yoga and meditation sessions to the children in the Family Home, and the children in the community, through our various projects to help with the trauma and developing a sense of well-being.
