Weightlifting and Yoga classes are utilized to teach all children social and emotional skills and self-regulation.  Classes are facilitated by caring educators and a Trauma Therapist. 


Together with Rockford Barbell's staff, an individualized goal plan will be developed for each child. Each plan targets each child's social and emotional development.


A Trauma Therapist is available to provide wrap-around services to families and children involved in our programs.  These individualized services could include further support at school, home, or elsewhere within the community.
