Crossover Yoga Project
Since its launch in December 2015, the non-profit organization Crossover Yoga Project (CYP) has empowered 3,500+marginalized teen girls toward positive change through trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness, and creative art expressions. CYP’s I Believe in Me gender-specific curriculum meets trauma survivors where they are at; and works with marginalized teen girls to help address emotional dysregulation, commonly found in traumatized youth.
Classes take place within residential treatment centers, group homes, shelters, after school programs, facilities for pregnant teens and teen mothers, juvenile and adult detention facilities and community programs. CYP participants report that after their participation in our program, they become more self-aware, build resilience, and self-respect.
Elisha has shown us time and time again that not only do we matter, but we matter to Elisha. CYP is an amazing organization that gifts inner peace and resilience to the youth that need it most. The skills and tools she has taught us, I will carry with me forever!”
