Testimonials:

“Learning the Sheltered Yoga curriculum has given me a new understanding of trauma, how it can be triggered, and how it is expressed. The care and attention that has gone into the lessons is impressive. Tina does an excellent job of connecting the lessons to different learning styles. Also, it is a curriculum that is engaging for both children and adults and can be taught in a variety of settings, including a classroom, workplace, or as part of a community program. Whether working with groups or individuals, I highly recommend this program.”
-Meredith R. (Certified SY Curriculum Teacher)

“I currently teach the curriculum at a location that was set up by Tina through Sheltered Yoga’s programming. Within the curriculum, the students are given a life skill to explore and an activity relating to that skill. After the activity we reflect and the students share their thoughts with the group. We then practice yoga using specific postures relating to the life skill we learned and end with relaxation. The Sheltered Yoga curriculum helps the students grow mentally and physically, helping them integrate what they learn into better life choices and a healthier lifestyle. The curriculum offers the students a safe place to explore their thoughts, grow their confidence & hope, and challenge their body and mind with postures and relaxation techniques.”
-Tina I. (Certified Yoga Instructor & Sheltered Yoga Curriculum Teacher)

“The Sheltered Yoga curriculum is very inspiring. It is presented in a real life presentation that any age can understand. Tina gives examples and then offers suggestions until the youth can relate or grasp what is being explained. The curriculum tends to be presented to the class and then is shown through an interactive activity. The activity is fun, engaging and always different. I have seen the most resistant teen try to find a way to participate, even if they don’t think you notice they are participating. It is exciting to be in these classes and the yoga and meditation are an added bonus. Participants are able to learn about ways their brain works, how breathing affects their bodies, memory and interpretation along with a variety of social behaviors and reactions. It helps youth realize why they react some ways as well as why someone else may react differently. It is really amazing to sit in a room full of teens who have experienced trauma and see the connections made and the desire to learn more. Sheltered Yoga is a unique and successful curriculum that embraces all ages.”
-Stacy Santiago, Associate Vice President, Center for Family Services, NJ

“I would like to recommend the Sheltered Yoga Curriculum that my class has participated in this past year. I have seen a positive impact on the students because of their participation in this program. They enjoy the sessons and several of their parents have commented that their children are also bringing their knowledge home. My favorite lesson was the mindful listening exercise. I find that this skill is needed in today’s world of education. The Sheltered Yoga teacher, Tina LeMar, was very patient and pleasant with the children. She made the class interesting and fun!
-Kathleen Asta, Kindergarten teacher at Gesu School, Phila. PA
