Keep fit songs With increased mindfulness not only of their

Keep fit songs

With increased mindfulness not only of their own condition but that of the larger group, she suggested that students might also begin to reflect on their behavior more closely, asking of their actions, How is this going to impact our community? It gives them the opportunity to learn about themselves, said Lichtenfels. It develops that intuitive process. The two women have derived their teaching materials from a variety of sources, but most heavily from one particular set of lessons, a science-based curriculum which pairs national standards with yoga principles, said Ater. It takes the question, is yoga religion? out of the equation. The lessons have been crafted in such a way that teachers can have confidence that the instruction they present is sound, she said. More information about the curriculum can be found at Ater and Lichtenfels dont plan to rigidly adhere to any one program; they said they are taking a loose approach to the classes. Ive been playing music, and will maybe incorporate more upbeat music themes in the future, said Ater. Lichtenfels, in her classes at Mills Lawn, has been including storytelling, singing, any sort of imaginative thing because then you have their attention, she said. There are a lot of things you can do with yoga that arent just postures. When they do work on poses, Ater said, she is impressed by the students ability to carry out some of the ones adults find difficult. Whats really fun about working with kids is their bodies are so supple, she said. By contrast, Lichtenfels said she has seen students, including accomplished athletes, surprised by the effort required of them. When they find themselves challenged by yoga, she hopes it will lead them to think that maybe theres something to this, she said. Its fun to show athletes challenging postures, said Ater. So far the program has been warmly received both by students and educators. Were actually getting a lot of great feedback, said Ater. I think were kind of surprising them that yoga can be fun. The schools teachers, who were an integral part of creating the program, are also thrilled for yoga to join the curriculum, said Ater. The school is bucking an unfortunate trend: rather than expanding their offerings, many schools have reduced their programs in recent years to save money. The funding which the Youth Yoga Project has received will allow it to continue through the spring of 2011 and through the entire academic year of 201120 Were excited to see at the end what were able to create, said Ater. Lichtenfels said they aspire to conduct at least phenomenological research into the programs effects, meaning that at the end of the program they will ask the students how it has benefited them. Ater, who is currently finishing a masters degree in yoga therapy from Antioch University Midwest, hopes to include what they learn in the creation of her capstone project. They may also try to publish a paper in a peer-reviewed journal, thus adding to a growing body of literature which examines the effect of yoga as it is applied everywhere from breast cancer clinics to Veterans Administration hospitals. For the present, Ater and Lichtenfels are focused on spreading the word. Thats the challenge for high school students, said Ater. They hope to soon have a Web site up and running; work on a Facebook page is underway too.
