Teach to the heart and grow positively together

"I have nothing but high praise for the School Kids Yoga course. I felt equipped to immediately implement strategies that students can use to keep focused, build comprehension, and problem-solve effectively. As a middle school teacher, many of my students face extreme challenges. I have seen great results from my students in the classroom and in their personal relations. I highly recommend that teachers take this course for the benefit of themselves and their students!"
