Join us in supporting at-risk children ages 5-18 in developing "more confidence, emotional stability, a peaceful attitude and a healthy lifestyle" through the Sean O'Shea Foundation's groundbreaking in-school yoga & nutrition programs 

The Foundation is named after Sean O’Shea, a much loved and young yoga teacher and studio owner who lost his life in a fatal freeway accident in December of 2006. In his memory, his family and friends established the Sean O’Shea Foundation, which empowers youth through yoga, nutrition education, mindfulness, and optimistic teachings. Our mission is to help youth, ages 5-18, develop life skills that can enable them to take responsibility for their lives, develop respect for themselves and others, and have confidence in their own potential.
