This is our September update on our survey of teachers of Teen Yoga. The aim is to find out how many young people are involved, the frequency of classes, the distribution across the country, the kinds of classes being taught, and so on. We have had a very good response so far, so a warm thankyou to all those of you who have already responded. But we need to spread the word.
Spread the word
Though the numbers are good, we would like to reach more people, in order to get as representative a sample as we can, and since the survey has been taking place over the summer, there may be some who have missed it. Please help us by filling it out yourself and if you have already completed it, please share it once more with your contacts.
Here is a link to the survey.
Why do the survey?
It is now more than ten years since Teen Yoga began, and more than 600 Teen Yoga teachers have been trained. Though we are in contact with many, we don’t have information about what everyone is doing and it would be useful to have it for all of us, because:
- It can help teachers promote the value of yoga to schools and parents by showing the number of young people already doing yoga
- It will also be of value to the Teen Yoga Foundation in our requests for funding, for our research and other activities.
- Having a clear idea of the activity in the Teen Yoga community will help us to better adapt the work we do to the real needs ot teen yoga teachers and the young people they work with.
In a way the survey is a kind of census of the Teen Yoga community. It is a simple online survey, to be answered by anyone who is teaching yoga to young people. It only takes a few minutes.

We will update once more before the end of September, and then when the process is complete we will publish a report on the results.
All the information will be treated in the strictest confidence, in accordance with current UK data protection laws, and when presenting results all data will be anonymised.
