Tens of thousands of local residents ages 17 years and younger live in poverty…We can help students release the stress associated with those challenges.“At-home struggles can make focusing in class incredibly taxing. But what we can do, is help students release the stress associated with those challenges by handing them a yoga mat, energizing edibles, and letting them unfold their magic.,” Saint-Orens adds. Nearly 400,000 children ages 14 years and younger live in the Austin-Round Rock five-county metro area (about 20 percent of all residents), and tens of thousands of residents ages 17 years and younger live in poverty, according to the yoga group’s written statement that cites the Can Community Dashboard. Beginning Aug. 20, Gen Z Yoga classes will be held at various outdoor venues in the Austin metro area, including Zilker Park, near Lady Bird Lake, and Auditorium Shores. Wholesome Generation will prepare healthy foods and offer indoor and outdoor space at its 5-acre school on Running Bird Lane in Austin. Charlotte Moore, who writes for soulciti, is also an organizer at Gen Z Yoga.
