The Amazing Transformation of a Guy Who Didn’t Give Up!
The healing power of yoga
Donna Harrington, one of our Wellness Educators who teaches yoga at the high school level has shared this video. She chose this video believing that it shows the healing power of yoga, and the resilience of the human spirit. “I show it to my yoga classes because teens love to know “why do I need to learn this?”” Her hope is that students find the video motivational.
High school yoga classes focus on Yin or Restorative yoga on Mondays. Yin yoga is great for stress and anxiety relief and helps keep joints and connective tissue healthy. Wednesdays the class goes outside for play, mindfulness, and time in nature. Fridays they do a more upbeat, vigorous yoga class using the most engaging music the group can find.
