Mindfulness in Schools

This resource includes a video and a brief summary of a mindfulness program in the Baltimore Schools, where students were trained in breathing techniques and yoga poses for 45 minutes, 4 times a week for 12 weeks. Johns Hopkins University is conducting an evaluation about the effects of mindfulness training in urban elementary schools and has found that students can respond to stress with less emotional arousal following the training. Video and brief are both available in Spanish. This resource supports resiliency.
