Yoga in Schools

I am lucky to be teaching weekly yoga at a local elementary school. If this is something you would like to see in your school please let me or your child's teacher know! We practice body awareness and proprioception (where your body is in space) as well as self regulation tools like breath and interoception (how your body feels inside).
