Gray’s Bill To Cut Yoga from Spiritual Roots As Schools Fight Multiculturalism

  • Post category:news

Schools in the U.S are struggling to accept the historical, spiritual roots of yoga. A new bill will seek to cut yoga from its spiritual roots as parents demand that Hinduism not be referenced in public school classrooms. The “Alabama Bill” that was past in 1993 made it illegal for schools in Alabama to teach yoga. The bill was introduced to prevent students in schools in Alabama from encountering the spiritual system of yoga, which is largely based on Hinduism. Lawmakers are fighting to get the decades-old ban lifted so that students can practice the physical exercises of yoga without…

How To Teach Meditation In Schools [And The Benefits]

I regularly receive messages from teachers asking how to teach meditation in schools. They have read the research and they understand just how beneficial mindfulness and meditation are for kids. Over the past five years, mindfulness programs have become hugely popular with both adults and kids. Listening to meditation music, practicing mindful breathing, using mantras… these are all mindful practices that would have looked alternative or even controversial in schools only ten years ago, but today are commonplace. The focus, of course, is to help kids relax, focus, and feel happy at school, both for their mental health and for…
