|Wellness is a lifelong skill
Fit Yoga is a new class offered to seniors at our high schools this year. The class introduces students to a wide range of yoga styles and yoga-inspired workouts, in
order to improve students’ physical, mental and emotional well-being, as well as to provide an outlet for students to experience yoga and its many benefits.
Some students like Dominick Bellocchio will tell you that more importantly, it has taught him techniques to help with stress management and relaxation, in order to meet the demands of today’s teens. In fact, Dominick says, it's also helped him with his performance on the football field by allowing him to get in his stance better and has improved his flexibility. As center for the Tiger Football Team, Dominick says he often does a little yoga before games or even at home when schoolwork might seem overwhelming. He plans to take some of the techniques he's learned when he hopefully heads off to Miami University of Ohio to study political science next year.
Wheaton Warrenville South teacher Nicole Juhl is thrilled that nearly 100 students have embraced the P.E. new class at South. A physical education teacher, Juhl was introduced to yoga several years ago and approached administration about creating the class. "I created the class so that students could develop stress management skills through mind body movement that will help them in and outside of school. The biggest benefit that I have seen so far from the class is that the students seem more accepting of themselves and others along with being able to manage their daily stress better," says Juhl.
Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services Faith Dahlquist frequently talks about balance in a student's learning experience. "Learning and practicing wellness is a lifelong skill," says Dahlquist.
