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:
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
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
