As an instructor, yoga teaches so many principles. It is a lesson in discipline and listening skills.

It is extremely fun when students learn more challenging poses. And it is a very good way for students to work on developing good physical and mental balance and strength. The group poses require team work and active participation and engagement. Lessons can be integrated and often extend in to curriculum materials for World History, Art History, World Culture, Health and Wellness, Psychology, and Character Building.
