My school has the wonderful benefit of offering yoga during the entire school year for 3, 4, and 5th graders. The students love to see the mats in a circle every Friday and even stop me at lunch time to make sure we are having yoga on Friday. Our school has seen more calm behavior in these grade levels on Friday and students use their mindful bodies in the classroom when they are feeling stressed. Just a great benefit to my program and I am lucky to have administration that supports this wonderful life skill.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are more calm in the hallways and classrooms on yoga day.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our school is blessed to have a wonderful yoga instructor teach the students while I walk around and monitor that the students are performing the skills correctly.

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

Our school has already secured the funds to have yoga for the entire 2020-2021 school year.
