The Super Sophia Project

Recently, Yogaga has made a charitable partnership with Super Sophia, a North-American network of parents of children with cancer, initiated by Nicolle, a mother in Toronto. Nicolle is the mother of Sophia, a 3-year old child who was diagnosed with leukaemia June of 2012. This amazing mom-daughter-duo inspired Yogaga to create a special-edition Animal Adventure for children going through cancer treatment.It has been proven that yoga can help seriously ill children cope with some of the physical and mental side-effects due to their illness and treatment.  The special edition DVD features the Animal Adventure yoga video including optional poses for children that might be confined to a bed or being generally less energetic to execute all the regular poses.
