Evidence-Based Impact of Yoga in Classrooms

Yoga in Schools Works Wonders!

Kids Yoga has become widely recognized for the health and well-being benefits it can provide for students.

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:

Emotional regulation

Teachers reported a significant increase in the ability of students to regulate their emotions

More teaching time

Strategies allowed teachers to spend more minutes on classroom instruction time

Preparedness

Teachers felt equipped to support students, recognize crisis, and felt able to de-escalate situations

Decline in disciplinary actions

Decline in disciplinary actions and referrals for behavioral/emotional challenges
