As mentioned, the Crim Fitness Foundation has been teaching mindfulness within Flint Community Schools (FCS) for nearly 5 years. Due to the devastating effects of the Flint Water Crisis, a need to ensure that Flint students grow up with a strong sense of self, purpose, and belonging is a priority. Mindfulness including yoga is the solution we believe will best help the challenges facing FCS students. Mindfulness is the ability to focus with more awareness and purpose. Practicing mindfulness has been found to help with focus which helps influence things like grades, music, art, and sports, all of which are important for a strong sense of self. Mindfulness teaches one to be able to constructively handle difficult emotions like stress, which also helps with a sense of self. Mindfulness has been found to increase resiliency in that students are not bothered by small things, but can successfully keep their mind focused on the larger picture. Mindfulness also encourages interconnectedness with lessons on loving kindness, empathy, and gratitude. Yoga offers many of the same benefits, but has the additional benefit of encouraging physical activity. Traditionally, Crim Mindfulness programming has offered in-classroom lessons to FCS students on concepts like, breath awareness, loving kindness, gratitude, empathy, mindful senses (tasting, seeing, hearing), test taking, etc. The expanded program will be more comprehensive offering several mindfulness interventions including additional yoga and mindfulness opportunities both during and after school. Offering different versions of mindfulness programming will hopefully help students find a practice that resonates with them. We believe expanding on our current mindfulness programming will help to reach every child in Flint.
