Review for Smiling Calm Hearts Open Our Learning, Inc. (SCHOOL), Pasadena, CA, USA
SCHOOL, Inc. has positioned itself to fill and provide a much-needed element in the public school system -- teaching children valuable techniques and methods through yoga and meditation to use in their lives not only at school but in their homes. Through SCHOOL teachers in the school systems are trained to use yoga and meditation techniques in the classroom to better equip their children with positive techniques to learn and to solve problems in a calm, mindful and respectful way as opposed to reacting in often-times confrontational, argumentative and even physical behavior.
Kelly Wood, the founder and CEO of SCHOOL, Inc. is such a warm and caring role-model for not only the children, but the teachers who she trains. Her passion is infectious, the children love her and the teachers are noticing positive results in the classroom—children listen better, interact in a more positive way with each other, are more focused in their academics, among many other benefits. The children’s faces say it all! A wonderful, and GREAT nonprofit.
