My students need yoga mats and yoga props (straps, blocks) to assist them in learning the mindfulness lessons of yoga and meditation with a Registered Yoga Alliance instructor.
My sixth grade students come from racially and economically diverse backgrounds. They are clever, creative, and ready to be academically challenged. They need someone who believes in their unlimited potential, someone who will teach, challenge and love them. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families, 100% of my students receive free breakfast and lunch to aid in student participation and performance.
Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best.
They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. They know students from their school have an excellent chance at attending college, and understand the sacrifices many of their parents have made for them to attend a magnet school with limited bus service. For many students, attendance at their school and hard work once they are here, is a ticket out of poverty for themselves and their families.
Yoga mats and yoga props will be used by my students throughout the year during class and before school to practice mindfulness activities. My students come from high poverty, high trauma homes and are attending a high stress, highly competitive magnate school environment.They need the ability to learn techniques to manage their stress and improve their ability to focus and engage at school.
Yoga and meditation are the perfect tools to help my students lead a better and more productive life.
By participating in instruction regarding yoga and mediation led by a registered yoga teacher, my students will begin to build a "tool box" of emotional skills to help them navigate home life, school life, and the life beyond education that all are aiming for.
Mindfulness in education can be the key to educational success for students in any environment. My students especially need mindfulness instruction and practice to improve their educational lives. It is my hope that they can take the skills learned in my class and generalize them to all areas of their lives.
