Each of the District’s 10 kindergarten classes will receive a weekly-30-minute yoga class for six weeks. Kindergarten teacher Nancy Goldberg has set up the program with funding from the Education Foundation of the Kennebunks and Arundel.
Engaging in yoga will increase the children’s readiness for learning. It will increase the children’s skills for mind-body connection and self-awareness of energy level and how to regulate energy for learning. The children’s concentration and attention for learning should improve following the yoga sessions. In addition, the kindergarten teachers will practice yoga strategies to conduct with their classes.
The classes will be taught by MIndy MIller Muse E-RYT, CCLYT www.mindymuseyoga.com
