Uprising Yoga is dedicated to healing at risk youth and communities that need it most. In Los Angeles county 82% of foster children are commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC). Because of legal loopholes these children are arrested and charged with the crime of prostitution, even though they are not old enough to give consent for sex. These kids are placed into juvenile hall and group homes. This is where Uprising Yoga meets these youths and provides yoga as a tool to heal trauma.
