Take a breath. In stressful situations, sometimes that's all it takes to restore our minds and stop us from reacting in violent or self-destructive ways.

We all wish for our children feel encouraged and nurtured in creativity and learning. Healthy bodies, healthy minds, healthy's every parent's hope for their kids. In an educational environment increasingly dominated by testing, standards and rankings, where resources are scarce, and stress dominates personal interactions, is it possible create space for the whole child, her creativity, her light, and her values to flourish?

YES! for Schools provides young people with tools for healthy living through daily breathing, yoga-based stretching, self-awareness, and pro-social workshops designed to enhance a sense of compassion and belonging among peers.

Think about it. Traditional disciplinary actions take a toll on our educational system and do not address the underlying cause of student infractions. The cost to incarcerate a young person is $150,000 per year. YES! for Schools is proven to reduce impulsivity in young people, restoring calm and boosting self-esteem. We have been successful in supporting students from some of the most difficult circumstances in the country. Because of our proprietary curriculum, YES! schools see dramatic reductions in disciplinary incidents and increases in academic success.

"YES! Teachers are just easier to talk to than other teachers. They really listen." --Carlos, 8th Grade
