This year's physical activity play was to offer yoga to students during Team Time. The student wellness team picked yoga as our play to help students get focused on learning as well as achieve all the physical benefits. We received a grant to purchase yoga mats from Fuel Up and graciously partnered with Maine Yoga Kids to provide a true yoga experience. In the future teachers and clubs will be able to check out the yoga mats for use in the classroom, on snow days, prep for testing days etc. The students are loving it!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The physical activity play this year was to offer sessions of yoga with a yoga instructor for students to get a chance to give yoga a try. A sign-up sheet is in the hallway, announcements are made in the mornings so the opportunity is open to all students. By the end of this play about 120 students will have had the chance to try yoga. Beyond this year, the yoga mats can be checked out by teachers to practice yoga during the day either with yoga cards, videos or instructor.
