’s Passport to Education program at Greene Elementary and Salem Church Middle. “I feel very calm and I can forget about the things that I do not like to think about. I calm down and then don’t need to be so upset anymore. I am grateful because you have taught me to control myself, thank you for your teachings, to be able to control my breath”. - PYR Programs Student 💪
Many ESOL students have shared stories of separations and reunifications due to migration, interrupted schooling, difficult, and border detentions. These experiences often have a traumatic impact on students, which manifests in the classroom and in daily life.
PYR has studied Adverse Childhood Experiences and uses yoga, meditation, and mindfulness as a community resource for serving youth and helping to build resilience. These trauma-informed classes have supported students as they heal trauma and build resilience.
Yoga provides a fully integrated experience by which a connection is made to one’s own body and to others.
