Welcome and thank you for your interest in our program.
Gymnasium Days: active yoga classes with components of mindfulness interwoven. These classes take place during PE classes. Typically, once a week all PE classes will be taught yoga by one of our instructors. We frequently have volunteer yoga demonstrators as a bonus support for the larger classes. The students will receive progressive yoga lessons from our dynamic yoga curriculum.
What to know before you apply?
In order for our programs to thrive we need strong advocates in the schools. We require the enthusiastic support of an administrator and at least one staff member in order for our programs to be successful. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and fundraise year round to support our programs and mission. We require all of our schools and organizations to attempt to help fund whatever IYM programming you might receive. If you are unable to find any funding, please apply and we will do our best to help you. Funding support can come from a variety of sources.
Some examples include:
funding from the district
funding from the school
PTA or other parent associations
funds for emotional/behavioral support
Frequency: Our programs most commonly occur once per week, but are not limited to this.
Duration: Our programs can run from as short as 4 weeks up to an entire school year.
