Hear What the Community is Saying about YCBC
Another 5th Grader James J. received 5 days of suspension from August to December. Then Yoga started in November, and James had no suspensions until the end of the year.
I recall both students last year outside of their classroom doing stretches you taught them in replacement of challenging behavior.

To whom it may concern,
I am writing to offer my recommendation for Mr. Christian and his team of experts in the YCBC Yoga Group. I have known Mr. Christian and his team for the past five years in a professional capacity as a teacher at Higher Learning Academy. I value their partnership in creating a learning environment conducive to the development of social and emotional skills in my students who truly benefit from their sessions. Their devoted efforts to teach mindful practices of being aware of yourself, your thoughts, your emotions and on how to be present in the here and now assisted my children considerably who needed to build their SEL skills.
Mr. Christian and his team showed me patience and flexibility when creating our weekly schedule for our yoga sessions. They assisted me when I needed help with certain students whose emotions fluctuated throughout the day and I so appreciated their adaptations to my children’s needs. They also worked collaboratively with our parents to ensure student success.
I absolutely love our continued work with them. They are a valuable partner in expanding Social Emotional Learning in my classroom and here on campus. I highly recommend them for any future endeavors.

During Mindfulness Teacher Training, I genuinely looked forward to every single session. It was a great way to decompress during the week. And I also gained a ton of skills that I could then take back to work at school and give to my scholars. I run student council so its a pretty high stress job at times, for me and the scholars. So having those tips and tools in Mindfulness are going to be so helpful during the school year!
I would take any Training that Christian offers!

Ja'vell, my fourth grader with management issues, started the yoga program once a week. By the end of the year he became more mindful in class and became one of my most improved students of the year...thanks to what he learned from Christian and his team!
