Elisha Simpson, RCYT, RYT-200
Founder & Executive Director of the Crossover Yoga Project

The Crossover Yoga Project is a nonprofit organization that empowers marginalized young women through trauma sensitive yoga, creative art therapy, health education, and character development. Participant pre- and post studies show a statistically significant increase in self-awareness, self-respect, and self control. 

Informed by an evidence based curriculum, CYP guides young women to improve emotional regulation, interpersonal skills and social behavior through a gender-specific, highly effective art and yoga curriculum providing them a chance to reach their full potential.

Taught in juvenile delinquent centers, CYP invites young women to explore themes of body image, communication, anger-management, relationships, resiliency and integrity to self and others. They learn to value themselves, and understand their own power to create change in their life.
