Edmunds Elementary students and teachers have been practicing Yoga in the classrooms for three years now. The program,  called “Y4C” is an innovative platform for improving student’s physical, emotional and comprehension skills. Y4C is designed to help the student increase adaptive and coping skills. Edmunds teachers lead the students in the classrooms with meditation and stretching moves every day. This year,  Edmunds students are returning the favor by leading yoga  poses and routines for the teachers as they start off their weekly staff meetings. The young instructors lead the teachers through the same procedures and strategies that they have learned in their own Y4C time, and the teachers dutifully follow their leadership for a relaxing start to their meetings.
