Inhale, Exhale: Young Yogi’s Are Now A Part of the Zone 126 Community Schools
Connect, breath, move, focus and relax these are the five elements that make up the Little Flower Yoga and Mindfulness Program model. On February 28th, Little Flower Yoga PS 171Q, and Zone 126 collaboratively launched the early childhood mindfulness and yoga program for students in Pre-Kindergarten through 1st grade as part of our US DOE Neighborhood Community School strategy. Little Flower Yoga a long-standing and highly respected organization in the field of yoga and mindfulness has been a part of the Zone 126 Cradle to Career work for the past four years at both IS 126Q and Long Island City High School. Through funding from the US DOE we have been able to establish this as a new program at PS 171Q, creating young yogis who are learning to calm their muscles, belly breathing, and how to re-focus their thoughts under two certified yoga teachers. Over the course of the nine weeks, our students in the early childhood grades will gain the benefits of learning to connect to themselves, control their breathing, move in a supportive manner, focus on their individual thoughts and relax so that they can personally succeed.
