In most cases, students who attend alternative high schools have a hard time finding ways to center themselves. Through a strong community partnership with a yoga studio, we have taken on a different approach to PE and offered students a therapeutic way to meet stress, beat stress and cope with it in a healthy way. Not only are students learning strategies to stay mentally and physically healthy in school, they are taking these strategies home to their families where, in many cases, there is trauma, little time for processing and no time for healthy habit building. Students are sharing ways to be resilient with one another and their families while increasing their attendance, decreasing their negative behavior at school and performing better in their classes. Through this partnership, we would like to share some of these strategies with you as we have seen a tremendous change over the past three years.
