“Our project with Bright Kids Yoga helps students and school staff develop personal resources and build community through healthy movement, breathing, peaceful communication, reflection and mindful awareness in our classrooms. Through progressive video practices with facilitator guides, live outdoor sessions and workshops for staff self-care and classroom implementation, we aim to create a school-wide culture that engages inner resources alongside academic skills. Incorporating evidence-based practices for increasing resilience and well-being will strengthen our school community's ability to navigate this difficult time together, while creating opportunities for playful and cooperative exploration.”
