At Maharishi School the underlying message in all we do for and with our students is this: everything you need to succeed is already inside of you. Teaching students yoga and meditate is an integral part of this curriculum; these tools will serve them for a lifetime.
Twice a day, every day, Maharishi School students practice their yoga asanas, then settle down to meditate for ten to fifteen minutes before heading back into the activities of the day. In addition to physical stretching and toning, asanas are an excellent way for kids to relieve stress. Yoga helps students to be more aware of their breath, and how breathing in different ways can enliven or relax the physiology. It improves balance, coordination, and posture. Yoga brings awareness and energy to every part of the body and teaches kids how to relax and recharge by tuning in to themselves.
Students leave yoga and meditation settled and focused. Maharishi School teachers and staff also do asanas and meditate, which prepares them to give their best to their students each day.
