Classroom Activities: Use Yoga to Stretch Your Students

Today on, we shine the proverbial spotlight on a relatively new classroom activity that’s been all the rage in some classrooms of late: Yoga.
Contributing writer James Paterson spells out yoga’s benefits in a well-researched centerpiece article today. He spells out yoga’s benefits for the body:
  • Improves posture, alignment, and core strength.
  • Reduces chance of injury.
  • Improves digestion and circulation.

And for the mind:
  • Expands imagination, creativity, and self-expression.
  • Improves discipline and ability to be less reactive.
  • Builds confidence and self-esteem.

James finished up his article like this: “Gonzalez, too, says the results will be evident quickly.
“Short breaks with movement like this can make a huge impact on classroom culture and climate, and student engagement. Daily repetition helps children integrate these practices and use them as tools in day-to-day life for a long time.”
