As the school year comes to an end, we, at TheYogaKids, look back with gratitude and gratefulness for the many blessings of this past school year. We had a great year teaching at many different schools in the Greater Toronto Area. Here are just a few of the programs we were involved in over the year.

Weekly classes—These classes were offered at lunchtime or as after-school programs. Sessions lasted eight weeks and were tailored to the interest and age-level of the students. Yoga games that focused on teamwork, listening, and cooperation were used to enhance social skills. Children experienced an increase in self-esteem during these times, because they were able to be successful, regardless of physical skills or circumstances.

Fun week of yoga with PE classes—Students were able to participate in our yoga program during their regular PE time period for an entire week. Students had a great time, while focusing on fun activities that helped create healthy bodies, minds, and spirits.

Fundraisers—We love to give back to our community. One way TheYogaKids does this is by taking part in school fundraiser programs. Our Karma Rewards Program gives back 5% of our proceeds to the school for every registrant.

Workshops for Teachers—We taught workshops to show teachers how to incorporate yoga into their classroom. We were also guest speakers in the classroom on a few occasions.

Regardless of the specific program, yoga helps students improve social skills, self-esteem, and calming techniques. They also experience a healthier body, better focus, and increased academic achievement.

Everyone at TheYogaKids would like to thank the teachers, the school districts, the parents, and most of all, the children, for allowing us to bring yoga into the classroom and into your lives. We hope you all have a safe and happy summer, and we look forward to working with the kids again in September!
