We learned about children in kindergarten at Miraloma School in San Francisco

18 Oct
We learned about children in kindergarten at Miraloma School in San Francisco who are being taught yoga and breathing meditation by their teachers, to use when they get a little too worked up..
BR got this note from a friend who was delighted to tell about the yoga and breathing meditation instruction her daughter was getting in her kindergarten class. She writes:

"By the way, I am having a ball volunteering in my daughter''s kindergarten class. I go in for about 1-1/2 hours per work and help out with their small group "centers." Would you believe that they do a few minutes of yoga every morning, and have learned to do a simple breathing meditation to use when they get too worked up? And this in the impoverished public schools. Such fabulous tools for young ones. I love it, and they do too.."

She adds: "Her school is Miraloma School in San Francisco. The teachers there have the opportunity to take a free yoga class one afternoon per week - on site -and I think that''s where they learn techniques to teach the little ones."

Bravo to Miraloma School, the teachers and the kids!
