One day. Over 300 kids. Yoga comes to Field Days!

Time for a trip down memory lane! Think back to your field days. If you are like me, you immediately picture tug of war, potato sack runs, and relay races, right? But now, schools are becoming more progressive in the way they incorporate health, wellness, and fun into school programs -- and students are enjoying the benefits.

I was very honored and excited to be given the opportunity to bring Butterfly Kids Yoga to Field Day at one Fairport elementary school this past week. The chance to introduce yoga to hundreds of kids and give them all an opportunity to feel strong, find balance, reset, and find calm.

One day.
Over 300 third and fourth graders in total.
5 sessions with over 60 kids in each session.
Everyone on their own yoga mat.

And boy oh boy, did they shine.

 
 Our first group of the day. Opening up with breathing and focus techniques.

 Later in the day. Teaching balance, focus and mindfulness.

 Jaws dropped from many teachers as they witnessed this sight. Complete silence except for the music. Kids finding the ability to truly relax and reset.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Fairport's Northside School for the opportunity to bring Butterfly Kids Yoga to school!
