The American Lung Association is proud to present Yoga Power, a school-based fundraising initiative that will help bring awareness to the importance of lung health to your school.

Yoga Power is a fun way for your children to show support for the fight against lung disease and to help promote healthy lungs. By practicing yoga, children can learn how to exercise, discover the power of their breath, develop confidence and strengthen the mind-body connection.
