Yoga Friendly School in the News

Asana Alphabet‘s teachers are proud of the students at Mott Haven Academy.  It’s nice to see this positive article (link below), which was recently published in the WSJ online, while much controversy has bubbled up about charter schools being an effective school model in NYC (or not).

“Even though their (the students’) world outside of school is falling apart, we want to keep their educational experience as consistent as possible,” the founder says.  One point I emphasize with new children’s yoga teachers is that your young students, particularly with at-risk youth, need you to be their consistent and reliable teacher as much as possible, rather than relying on frequent substitutes to keep their classes growing.


Happy Reading!!
