Giving Back

We are honored to partner up with Empowered Minds in Charleston, SC for our Giving Yoga Mat program.

For 9 years Empowered Minds is dedicated to teaching yoga and mindfulness to students and to creating learning-ready and compassionate classrooms, particularly in Title 1 schools. They help students cultivate the social and emotional learning skills of resilience, self-worth, self-control, kindness and awareness so that they thrive at school, at home and in their communities.

Why yoga and mindfulness in schools?

Since the day that chalk first met blackboard, teachers have been commanding students to "Be quiet! Pay attention! Calm down!” But how, literally, does a child who’s distracted or distressed, restless or reactive learn to calm down, to focus attention, to quiet himself? No one ever taught that. Empowered Minds does, teaching kids specific tools, creative techniques and daily practices to lay the foundation for attentiveness, stability and curiosity upon which all learning rests. In a world where stress, technology and distraction grow ever more pervasive, teaching our children these tools is more essential than ever.

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT MOVEMENT — ALONG WITH THE ABILITY TO CALM THE MIND AND NERVOUS SYSTEM — IMPROVES COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT AND OVERALL STUDENT PERFORMANCE.
