The yoga mats I am requesting will assist in classroom counseling lessons. Mindfulness and class meetings build resilience, empathy, lengthen attention span, and help students regulate their emotions. Each yoga mat will provide students a home-base during class meetings, mindfulness exercises, and mindful yoga poses. During class meetings students are encouraged to share how they are feeling and respond to one another appropriately. This helps students build relationships and social skills. Mindfulness is a technique used to pay attention to the present moment. Research has shown that practicing mindfulness has many benefits including regulating emotions, building empathy and compassion, and improving attention. The mats will be a personal space that the students may use when they need to quiet their minds and calm their bodies. Students will feel safe and empowered to use the space in the classroom and in my office.
