Classroom Yoga Breaks

We are in the thick of classroom yoga. This program is a section in the School Volunteer Handbook, which includes the free CD.   KSL filmed us on Monday, stay tuned for which day at 5 am you can catch it (or maybe I will post the link..) Many thanks to Julie Iorg, our wonderful volunteer yoga teacher who said, “We started today! YEAH! They too are a great school and I feel so lucky to be working with them! All of the teachers and students were so thankful to have the yoga breaks. They were excited and welcoming and each class truly enjoyed the break that we shared ..Thanks Yael for everything. As your yoga breaks are a gift to these children- it is a gift for me to share them!” free breaks on our website! 

Dealing with Trauma

If you are looking for some helpful and informed resources on issues dealing with trauma, visit the Trauma Justice Center website. It’s got information on resources, studies, and programs to help people address issues of trauma.  I just completed a training on trauma-sensitive yoga and it was inspiring. Lila Press’s Yoga Makes Me Feel …  was warmly received and will be part of a trauma handbook to be reviewed by this group.
