Earlier this year, students from Pittsfield High School and educators from Monument Mountain Regional High School, both local schools, visited Kripalu and shared with us how the Yoga in the Schools program impacts their lives and their communities. The Kripalu Yoga in the Schools (KYIS) program brings its evidence-based yoga curriculum to middle and high schools, and studies the impact of the practice on participating students. “What we’ve learned is that students who do yoga regularly have more resilience, better anger control, and less fatigue than those who don’t,” says KYIS faculty member Janna Delgado. In the spring of 2013, students from Pittsfield High School in nearby Pittsfield, Massachusetts, spent a day at Kripalu and shared with us what yoga means to them.
