Yoga Love

Help me give my students yoga with fidelity. My students are in dire need of new yoga mats. We perform yoga every morning to start our day off in a calm and self-regulated state.

My Students

I teach students with severe cognitive and behavioral delays in Queens, NY. As a teacher, I can see my students are dedicated, hardworking, and exceptionally respectful and need all the support that they can get. The majority of my middle school students are severely below grade level due to multiple disabilities including Autism and varied Intellectual Disabilities. Additionally, they come from home lives that often can't meet their individual levels of need both financially and academically. They need help with materials and supplies that can provide them with opportunities to practice functional living skills in the classroom.

As we are applying functional curriculum to help meet the earliest needs of many of the students.

This curriculum calls for a TON of daily teaching materials and resources that I just cannot afford. From life skills materials to individual reinforcements (motivating items that low motivated students will work for) and back again, my budget just can't handle replenishing these items for every student as they go through them. I am asking for your help! I know my students can be independent and take care of themselves in the future.

My Project

These yoga mats will help my students do yoga every morning. Currently, our mats are so deteriorated that students are not performing yoga with fidelity. Please help me bring yoga to my students and for that proper clean yoga mats are necessary.

Yoga helps my students with special needs with their ability to self regulate, maintain calm, organized state across for the demands in the environment.

It helps them with sustaining attention, task performances, and expressive and receptive communication. For example, a student can be upset in the morning but the yoga routine will help them calm down and eventually self regulate without interventions.

There are immense benefits of yoga and my students can take advantage of them by practicing yoga every day. My students will eventually be able to develop the skill of staying focus and calm with the use of yoga practice every day.
