Welcome to Niroga Institute®
Niroga is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that brings Transformative Life Skills to students, vulnerable youth, cancer survivors, seniors and people battling addiction. The work of Niroga directly uplifts thousands of people every week in schools, juvenile halls, homeless shelters, cancer hospitals and rehab centers.
Our programs are part of a cost-effective front-line prevention and intervention strategy for violence reduction, education and mental health, and positive youth development. Niroga also trains minority young adults to become Certified Yoga teachers, prepared to serve their own communities with cultural competence and linguistic sensitivity.
What are Transformative Life Skills (TLS)?
Mindful Yoga, breathing techniques, and meditation are Transformative Life Skills. Practicing these skills helps individuals approach challenges with greater peace and confidence. Independent researchers from UC Berkeley and Kaiser Permanente have shown that TLS reduces stress and increases self-control and resilience.
Help Niroga! Would you like to be part of a positive change in your community? Niroga's TLS programs are widely viewed as a necessary condition for positive youth development in many communities. Help us bring Transformative Life Skills to at-risk and underserved populations.
