During the first week of May, students at Smithtown Elementary School participated in yoga classes during their physical education periods. Thanks to the school’s arts and education committee, Yoganomics in Medford provided students with a physical outlet to practice mindfulness. The instructors taught students in all grades to focus on their breathing, connect with their body and master challenging poses that some thought would be impossible. Using strength, balance, and focus, students were able to take their yoga practice to the next level.
