Sheltered Yoga's Core Curriculum focuses on raising self-esteem and self-worth among all children. Lack of self-esteem is the largest undermining problem across cultures and communities. Every unit plan we offer incorporates tools to build a healthy and strong self-esteem. Our curriculum is incredibly unique in that it uses a Howard Gardner approach in each lesson plan so children, learning in all different ways, will be captured and engaged. It also couples these learning styles with an interdisciplinary structure within each lesson plan.
We have been implementing our curriculum in day programs, transitional housing facilities, foster homes, and alternative schools. Not only does it work effectively but we are able to engage the toughest and most challenging children- ones living with high levels of trauma, poverty, and mental and physical barriers. Rider University Statistics, Teaching, and Psychology Departments have been analyzing our evaluations and creating accredited outcomes for our organization. The success of our curriculum is in the data.
