Bosti Elementary School fifth-grade students in Joanna Zalewski’s have been learning yoga-based movements, focus skills and relaxation techniques this year through workshops with yoga instructor Margot Harris.

Ms. Harris, an instructor of Little Flower Yoga, utilizes the tools of yoga and mindfulness to assist in developing the skills necessary to handle mental and emotional stress. The School-Yoga project provides students with 20 in-school sessions designed to teach students those skills for daily use.

“These practices serve as a tool that children can use immediately to facilitate a stronger connection to self, and the world,” said Mrs. Zalewski. “The program also helps students recognize their tremendous potential and inner ability.”
