Yoga Ed. is committed to doing what it takes to support the physical health and mental wellbeing of school communities, now and always. In light of school closures and the current global crisis, Yoga Ed. is offering Free Online Yoga & Mindfulness Classes for Children & Teens, a new service. Yoga Ed.’s Online Yoga & Mindfulness Classes for Children & Teens are free for everyone and offer teachers and parents a way to stay grounded, connected, and healthy with the children and teens in their lives.
“Our classes can be used to provide inclusive distance learning options for physical education and brain breaks throughout the virtual school day.” says Brynne Caleda, Co-Founder at Yoga Ed. “All classes are streamable on any device and developmentally appropriate for children and teens.”
Benefits of online yoga and mindfulness classes include...
+ The yoga and mindfulness classes allow students to practice yoga on their own time in their chosen safe space. This allows students to feel safe to practice while focusing on their own health and wellness.
+ Students can choose from mat or chair options. This means that students who do not have space, clothing, or equipment for practicing yoga at home can gain the physical and mental health benefits of yoga and mindfulness using just a chair.
+ All classes are educationally based, giving students practical applications of yoga and mindfulness to their own lives. For example, a yoga class for stress reduction provides students with tangible breathing exercises and yoga poses to reduce stress while practicing yoga on the mat or in the chair, as well as activities that they can take off the mat or chair and use in their daily lives.
+ Yoga Ed. classes adhere to guiding principles which set best practices for yoga programs, while not intending to supersede the policies and values of any individual, yoga studio, school, or other organization.
+ The class library includes yoga classes for adults, so teachers and parents can nurture themselves while taking care of the young ones in their lives.
