Yoga Classes At Dubuque Elementary Schools

Officials in the Dubuque school district are hoping to improve a kid’s performance through yoga and mindfulness. The district is on its’ third year of implementing the curriculum in its’ elementary schools. The district gives each elementary student a yoga lesson once a month. They practice yoga poses and breathing and mindfulness activities. District Behavior and Learning Support Director Mae Hingetgen says the goal is to help students connect with their emotions. Jaden McClinton is a 4th grader at Audubon. He says he’s learned to take deep breathes when he’s upset. Although the lessons are only offered in the elementary schools now, the district hopes to expand to the middle schools and maybe even eventually to the high schools.
