Bringing Mindfulness into the Classroom

Yoga in schools works wonders!

It has become widely recognized for all of the health and well-being benefits it can provide for students.

 

Evidence-Based Impact of Yoga in Classrooms

Kidding Around Yoga methods integrate seamlessly into school curriculums and classroom routines, providing yoga-based opportunities for mindfulness, behavior and stress-management, health awareness, and social-emotional learning.

Through grant funding, we have had the privilege to share our EduKAY Professional Development Program with dozens of public schools and hundreds of educators in West Virginia.

West Virginia University studied the effects of the Kidding Around Yoga training and the findings are powerful:

  • Educators reported a significant increase in the ability of students to regulate their emotions following the implementation of EduKAY strategies in the classroom.
  • Teachers reported that mindfulness strategies in the classroom allowed them to spend more minutes on classroom instruction time.
  • Educators reported an increase in feeling equipped and knowledgable in strategies to support students, recognizing kids in crisis, ability to de-escalate situations and resources available to them to support students in the school and community.
  • There appears to be a declining trend in disciplinary actions and referrals for behavioral/emotional challenges.
