AES Yoga Club
Welcome to Alcoa Elementary School's Yoga Club Page
2023 Spring Semester - AES YOGA CLUB
This spring, we are piloting our school's first yoga club, which will be focused on increasing physical activity, developing social emotional and mindfulness strategies, and participating in creative expression activities. Daily mindfulness practices have been tied to increased student attendance rates, decreased suspension rate, and reductions in stress and anxiety. Wellness practices have also been shown to increase student confidence and performance.
We are thrilled to offer an amazing life-changing opportunity to a select group of AES students and their families. Dr. Evans is currently being certified as a Social Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, and Yoga Instructor through Breathe for Change and students participating in this club will be learning strategies to help them have a growth mindset, improve physical and emotional well-being, develop a positive body image, and reduce anxiety in stressful situations. As this is a pilot program, the club is limited to 12 participants. We have received a grant from the Alcoa City Schools Foundation to purchase mats and blocks for this number of students and it is the recommended number for a child's wellness class. We also received additional resources from our system Coordinator of School Health.
We will meet weekly on Wednesday afternoons from 2:45-4:00 in the library. Yoga Club will begin on January 18th and will go until April 12th . All children must be picked up promptly at 4:00 outside of Katie's Garden. If your child goes to STARS, we will make sure they are checked in at the conclusion of each training session. The AES Cafeteria Staff has generously agreed to provide after school snacks for us. It will be very important for accepted families to join our club ClassDojo group. In the event of club cancellation, inclement weather, or student shoutouts, this will be the quickest way for us to communicate with all families and for caretakers to reach either of the club sponsors.
