At Instill this year we will be presenting the results of the Teen Yoga Foundation survey that we have been carrying out over the summer.These results are giving us a good idea of how many young people are involved in yoga, the frequency of classes, the distribution across the country, the kinds of classes being taught, prices, organisational arrangements and so on. You can book for Instill here, and remember that registered members of the Teen yoga Foundation get a discount. You can register here, or use the JOIN NOW button on the left.
Enrich the results!
We have had a wonderful response, larger than might usually be expected for a survey of this kind, so a warm thankyou to all those of you who have already responded. We will be closing the survey on Tuesday 3rd October, to give a little more time for anyone else who hasnt heard about it, since the more response we have, the richer the insights we can share. Since the survey has been taking place over the summer, there may be some who have missed it. Please help us and share it once more with your friends and contacts. Here is a link to the survey. We look forward to seeing you, and hearing you too in the workshops at Instill!
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.

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.
