Many elementary school age students have not yet developed sufficient strategies for stress management, and particularly may be unaware of the benefits of yoga. Because they do not have well-developed strategies, they are more vulnerable to negative effects of stress such as poor behavior problems or low school performance. Yoga may help these children better manage stress. Therefore, I created a three-day lesson for fourth graders at Virginia Rocca Barton Elementary School in Salinas, California.
