Our curriculum follows a 5 parts of practice approach integrating lessons that benefit the whole student through heart and brainpower, movement, sensory experiences, breathwork, and guided mindfulness practices.

The goal of the seated practice is to help students connect their body and their breath. These practices help to calm the nervous system, refocus the brain, and relax the body. These seated practices are grounding, connecting, and centering.

The movement section often begins with the Sun Salutation, which is the physical practice of moving the body, mind, and breath together in a set sequence of yoga poses. It is important to bring these three realms together to be more present in the body.

This part of practice is the main focus of each lesson. It is here that students learn new social-emotional skills and mindfulness techniques. This part of practice will be different each time.

This is a safe time in which participants can relax and release. A yoga story or song is utilized to encourage imagination and a gentle reset for the rest of the day.

This part of the mindfulness practice helps participants complete and close all parts of the lesson they have just learned. The repetition of simple words, phrases, or songs support mindfulness, self-esteem, and self-regulation.

Having Challenge to Change in our classrooms has been amazing! 

 

Yoga and mindfulness has helped so many of our students with their social and emotional behavior.

 

This is the one time in their day that gives them a chance to calm their minds and bodies in their world of chaos. It’s been magical!

I see our teachers putting elements of yoga and mindfulness to practice for themselves and with our students every day. Students are using these skills to help self-regulate and to live happier lives.

 

My staff has been able to change the culture into a calmer environment more conducive to learning. This has shown up in multiple academic and behavioral data points which is so rewarding to see.

As we work to create positive, engaging classrooms for our students, we look for tools, strategies, and lessons that truly support the success of the whole child. I have students doing mudras, writing positive mantras, and doing poses when they need it to help them be their best selves.

 

After a yoga lesson a student said, 'I feel so powerful.' What a testament to the moments that are happening due to the yoga project.
