How did you and your students feel at the end of the school year? Totally rested, calm, and in control…right? (Yeah, we didn’t think so!) We know that teachers have the toughest job around, and that by the time summer rolls around, it’s hard to catch a breath, while students are exhausted from head to toe.

This summer, we’re digging into our chair yoga toolkit and looking for ways to support your classroom in the next school year — not just to start off on the right foot, but to help you sustain your energy (and sanity) from September through May.

With chair yoga in your classroom, you’ll be able to reap all of the benefits of a yoga practice, without all of the fuss. Whether you are looking for a way to teach students to find their calm, or need to add a dose of self-care in your own schedule, chair yoga is perfect for fitting in some mindful moments, with opportunity to move built in.
