Over a recent, two-day, live training class and many hours of online modules and training, four faculty members at the Mountain School at Winhall completed a Kids Yoga Teacher Training program with Kidding Around Yoga. Research clearly shows that children who learn to stretch their bodies  and relax their busy minds through yoga, deep breathing and mediation are better able to focus in school, maintain healthy  relationships and feel less anxiety. The teachers are using these practices with their students throughout the day in classrooms and in after-school classes. “The immediate impact and positive affects  are palpable,” says head of school, Patricia Stanley, who also received the training. “Students love  learning the yoga poses and truly want to learn to meditate! It is  fantastic to see something so tangibly healthy put into practice throughout our school.”
