Third-grade Nokomis Elementary School students in Jennifer Swenning’s class worked on mindful meditation practices as they engaged in a yoga class led by class mom Lisa Zimmerman.

Each month, the class participated in yoga sessions and learned multiple poses, including warrior, child, cat, cow and tree. During each session, Ms. Zimmerman emphasized the practice of slow, controlled breathing and being cognizant of body position. As a part of each class, students worked to improve core strength, balance, flexibility and effective breathing techniques.

With the help of calming music, the students concluded each yoga class with meditation to promote calm and focus throughout the school day.
