My Students

My students this year have been taking advantage of every physical education experience they can get their hands on. They only meet with me in class once every six days for forty minutes. In this small amount of time, the majority of them want to participate and get in their daily movement. They are hungry for physical activity.

Students do a wonderful job of following class expectations and do a nice job of including each other in activities.

Their attitudes are exceptional during physical education classes as well. Students are eager to learn and have been very respectful this year.

My Project

These blocks will help poses fit the body of the students using the pose. Basically, the blocks are used as props that will help the students to maintain proper posture and alignment while getting into and staying in physical postures. This will help the students gain confidence as well as maximize the benefits of the postures and movements.

Our students with multiple disabilities and autism receive yoga in small groups on average of once a week.

The blocks will assist them when needed. These students have been excelling with yoga. Their listening skills are improving and their concentration while practicing has been amazing to observe. These blocks will help our students gain maximal benefits in this program.
