All classes consist of yoga postures, breathwork, meditation and other ways of learning such as art projects, music, games, partner work and use of props. After school programming is designed to help students learn the foundations of yoga and to build on them. These classes are deeper dives of some of the concepts discussed in a yoga classroom setting, but help the students understand the depth and the magnitude of how yoga really helps improve a connection to mind, body and the world around them.
After School Programming
One day a week after school, The Do Good Movement offers yoga classes for students for 45 minutes. Classes teach students how to:
- control the way they feel by the use of their breath
- develop relaxation techniques to help calm their mind and body
- create body awareness through the learning of the yoga postures
- stretch, lengthen and tone the body to help students with physical fitness and movement in a typically very static learning environment.
