Youth Yoga Hour
Yoga and Mindfulness for Students
A semester or year-long weekly yoga program that teaches PreK-12th grade students to use their breath and body to regulate their mind and nervous system. A trained YYP instructor leads students through our trauma-informed, social emotional learning curriculum that empowers students with simple and effective yoga and mindfulness practices. When students have a toolbox of healthy coping and stress management strategies, they are able to easily calm and focus their mind and body throughout the school day using accessible mindful movement, breathing and relaxation strategies.
This program can be incorporated into the general education classroom, health or PE class, advisory programs, lunch or recess, or before or after school programs.
