Keiki Yoga Kohala is an empowering yoga education and healthy lifestyles program now celebrating its 10th year at Kohala Elementary. KYK serves all 335 students and their teachers at Kohala Elementary School by delivering 30 minute yoga sessions directly in the classroom. In a world where more emphasis is put on testing and less time is given to children for physical activity, these classes are sometimes the only opportunity for a student to exercise and de-stress during the day!
This year Keiki Yoga Kohala is expanding to include teaching the five benchmarks of social emotional learning (self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills, social awareness and positive decision-making.) We are also adding a no-cost weekly yoga class for teachers and staff of Kohala Elementary. Your support is greatly appreciated and helps make this expansion possible.
