Effects of Daily 15-minute Yoga Protocol on Academic and Psychosocial Measures in Inner City Classrooms
Study Conducted by:
"The Niroga Institute" hypothesized that a 15-minute yoga protocol administered regularly in inner city classrooms would help students to: 1) reduce stress and 2) increase self-control or resiliency, preparing them to learn with focus, attention and engagement.
Methods: We are bringing a 15-minute Transformative Life Skills (TLS) protocol, a multi-modality intervention including yoga, breathing techniques and meditation, into 15 classrooms at El Cerrito High School for this Fall semester of 18 weeks, with frequency varying from once to five times/week. ...
Results: Our TLS programs with incarcerated youth have shown statistically significant decline in stress and increase in self-control and self-awareness (Kubo & Bose, SYTAR 2008; Bose & Philipp, SYTAR 2007). Analysis of data comparing the pre-semester and post-semester information indicates favorable changes in both stress and self-control, and compellingly positive qualitative feedback from students and teachers during the mid-semester span-shot.
Results of the The Niroga Institute data analysis indicate that this 15-minute yoga protocol in the classroom reduced stress and increased self-control."
