Mental Health & Wellness Week Thought for the Day – Does Yoga help with teen anxiety? The answer is yes!! A recent study divided a group of 11th & 12th graders and gave them ½ a course in Yoga, and the other ½ had regular gym class. The students who took Yoga had less anxiety and were happier in general after 10 weeks. The students in the Yoga class also reported being able to focus better on their school work. So join us today during periods 5, 6 & 7 in Rm. 181 for a fun stress relieving Yoga class.
