Yoga Kids

Colleen Kowal, Hilton Head School for the Creative Arts

Twice a week before school, students at Hilton Head Island School for the Creative Arts are learning to release energy and soothe the rigors of school through the ancient practice of Yoga.  School Guidance Counselor, Colleen Kowal, has taken more than 500 students through the program which was implemented this school year to help students develop more mindful behavior. 

According to Mrs. Kowal, “
Yoga can help kids improve focus and memory,” Kowal says. “The idea is that if they can take what they’re learning in the yoga class and apply those skills in the classroom and in their lives, that’s the end goal.”

The program was featured recently in Hilton Head Island Monthly.  Click here for details.
