Feature from KSTP/ABC News in Minneapolis, where more that 400 public school educators are now using Yoga Calm in the classroom. "It really gets them centered and ready to learn, ready to listen to each other and listen to me," said fourth grade teacher Susan Saly.
Yoga Calm instructors Julie Hurtubise and Kathy Flaminio, who work for the Minneapolis School District, took a year sabbatical to research the benefits of Yoga Calm and found great things. "Off-task behavior has decreased greatly, children are more calm and able to listen and handle stress better," said Hurtubise.
Distilling over 30 years of school teaching, counseling and yoga experience into a practical, easy-to-teach method, Yoga Calm (TM) is an innovative education method developed by Lynea Gillen, MS, and Jim Gillen, RYT-500, that blends physical yoga, social skills games and counseling techniques. It reduces stress, develops concentration, fitness and social/emotional skills. It nurtures teamwork and leadership. And it helps create calmer homes and more productive schools.
