Why Join Hands

    • Yoga teaches compassion, empathy, self-confidence, and self-reflection—all of which lead to a more grounded individual, and thus, foster the growth of an individual less likely to express his or her emotions through self-destructive habits or in negative, non-productive ways such as violence.

    • Yoga gives students a way to strengthen and regulate their bodies, minds and emotions.

    • Research in neuroscience shows that through the reduction of stress, yoga increases test scores, school attendance, graduation rates, and alleviates test anxiety. Yoga teaches students to deal with academic challenges from a place of calm and confidence, increasing  their enjoyment of learning and their overall academic performance.
