Thank you to everyone who's be a part of our campaign so far -- Just a few days left to contribute:
EVERY $25 GIVES A CHILD 3 YOGA CLASSES.
Students across the country are struggling in school. With budget cuts and over-testing, schools are forced to cut back or eliminate physical education and recess, meaning our children are sitting at a desk for 7+ hours every day. And lack of physical activity hampers every aspect of a child’s growth and ability to learn.
Bent On Learning has a solution: yoga in the classroom. Studies show that yoga’s combination of movement with breathing, relaxation and meditation exercises not only improves physical health, but also has a positive impact on emotional and cognitive intelligence. Your contribution can make a big difference in a child's education and in everyone's future...and we are counting on your support!
Bent On Learning is a nonprofit organization committed to teaching yoga to New York City public school children. Through yoga, we teach kids how to release stress, calm their emotions and pay attention — all of which makes them healthier, happier and more prepared for learning.
The Crowdrise Holiday Challenge will allow us to maximize your donation, bring additional yoga to classrooms around NYC and instill in students a lifetime love of health and learning.
