Physical education is part of every school's curriculum though some are putting a new twist on the old subject. Climbing a knotted rope hanging from the gym ceiling is so passé. Having seen the benefits of meditation, relaxing and stretching, Fernback Elementary School in Atlanta is making yoga part of their students' daily routine.
Since the practice was adapted to the teacher's lesson plans nearly two years ago, test scores and test taking skills have improved at the school. And, the kids are loving it too.
Would you campaign for yoga classes at your child's school?
