Education requires more than thinking. To improve learning, we must also address the physical, emotional and social well-being of students. Through the use of our innovative and highly successful yoga, meditation, and mindfulness methods for the classroom setting, educators gain tools that help improve academic achievement and helpful attitudes. Equally as important, educators discover how crucial these tools are for themselves to enhance the dignity of teaching.

There is no quick fix for emotional disturbances that are on the rise in our society. It is possible, however, to engage in a step-by-step approach of grounding ourselves with the intention of kindness and being gentle with ourselves and others as a counter to emotional spin out or despondency. This is where SCHOOL Kids Yoga program steps in. (Smiling Calm Hearts Open Our Learning)

  • This is easily the best course I’ve taken. Assignments were reasonable in terms of time
    commitment, but they were also immediately applicable to my classroom. I have never taken
    a class that had such a positive, immediate effect on my teaching practice.
