YOGA AND MINDFULNESS IN AN
UNDER-RESOURCED PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The JC Nalle Elementary is a wonderful school in the under-resourced area of SE Washington DC. Most of the children at the school receive free hot meals. Our amazing teacher Shakeelah is passionate about sharing fitness, mindfulness and tools for emotional regulation with under-served children. We already see the impact she's making in this project!
"My mission is to uplift underserved communities of color through compassion, inclusivity and the art of wellbeing. Recognizing that children in these communities often lack resources that foster emotional development, I combine the energetic qualities of movement with the power of breath to guide them in synchronizing mind, body, and spirit. By sharing this meditative practice, it helps empower kids to break down barriers, harness their own light and cultivate a life that is consciously rooted with intention."
