BENEFITING: SMILING CALM HEARTS OPEN OUR LEARNING
ORGANIZER: SMILING CALM HEARTS OPEN OUR LEARNING
EVENT: #STARTARYOT Challenge
As a kids yoga teacher, I am a huge supporter of the non-profit organization, "SCHOOL", which will place kids yoga teachers in the public classrooms for a morning 20-minute yoga class. Introducing ways to help children calm their hearts and breath is invaluable in the classroom and provides the skills that these children will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
SMILING CALM HEARTS OPEN OUR LEARNING wrote -
Educating the heart for greater learning in public schools.
SCHOOL classes teach children how to calm the breath and heart for improved learning. We use proven secular yoga and meditation techniques to promote relaxation and mental focus. Children also learn empathetiic life skills such as patience, listening, and helping others.
We care about the well being of teachers and share practical tools for classroom management and stress reduction. Our goal is to help create environments where learning can flourish.
SCHOOL classes are taught by volunteers who are trained specifically to teach within the public school system. Our approach is secular and grounded in scientific, medical research.
We serve children and teachers within inner cities. Your donation will support SCHOOL programs and help us reach deep into these traditionally underserved areas.
How you can help:
A little support helps many hearts.
For $15, SCHOOL can provide one 20-minute class for 26+ children and their teacher.
For just $45, SCHOOL can help 3 classrooms, each classroom receiving 20-minutes of calming techniques. Or we can teach one classroom for 3 weeks.
Gifts of $90 will allow SCHOOL to go into 3 classrooms twice a month.
With support of $180, SCHOOL can teach 3 classrooms for one month, helping them build calming skills.
When you give $450, a public school teacher receives a scholarship for the SCHOOL Teacher Training course.
To show our children we care about their learning and well-being, gifts of $1500 support the SCHOOL program within 3 classrooms for one academic year. Best results occur with weekly classes for an entire academic year.
