The Mindful Movement
Mindful Movement After School Program
Schools today face more challenges than ever before.
Educators are facing overcrowding...
Socio-economic issues...Lack of funding...
...and countless other challenges.
Facing their own difficulties, students struggle with depression, bullying, unstable home environments, and other social and emotional issues that lead to behavioral problems.
But what if there was a way educators could help children learn self regulation and discipline in a fun, calming environment?
Now, there is.
Yoga N Da Hood is dedicated to helping children heal through mindfulness and gentle exercise.
Educators will see calmer, more thoughtful students and a natural increase in classroom performance and discipline.
Classroom issues are transformed into stress relief for both students and teachers…
The positive emotional and mental effects of yoga will promote healthier, non-confrontational behavior in the children, making it easier for them to focus and learn.

Mindful Movement Overview
The Mindful Movement After school program created to develop students social and emotional skills in underserved communities. 23 is the number of school shootings that have been reported at the time I am applying for this grant. This epidemic is a direct collation to the lack of social/emotional development and self regulation in our youth. The Mindful Movement After School Program not only teaches and implements wellness and self regulations skills, we also decrease student behavior issues in the classroom by 62%.
We use The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) to provide evidence based assessments. The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is the world’s leading organization advancing one of the most important fields in education in decades: the practice of promoting integrated academic, social, and emotional learning for all children in preschool through high school.
It is one of a kind, no one in the Southern Sector of the United States is doing this work in underserved communities. We take Mindfulness and Wellness and make it accessible in communities that would not have access to these life saving coping skills. Yoga N Da Hood targets those students that have been written off as "the BAD KID", we give them coping skills to deal with life's ups and downs responsibly and with compassion for self and others.
Yoga N Da Hood is dedicated to changing the way the Education System develops our youth socially and emotionally. As a former teacher, I understand 1st hand what our youth are going through with no SEL skills to help them live productive lives beyond the classroom.
"It is easier to raise strong children, than to repair a broken man" W.E.B Dubois
