YES - Yoga Education in Schools

YES is at the core of Neohumanist Education and integrated into the curriculum for all ages. YES Programmes are also taking place in public schools in various parts of the world as a way to bring yoga and meditation into a main stream curriculum.

The YES curriculum can be likened to the backbone of the human which provides the framework and support for the whole body while insuring its integrity. In the same way, the subjects and methods of YES address the personal development of the child including their vitality, character, joyfulness and life direction. Through YES, the children gain not only strength in this subjective approach to life but also strength for objective adjustment to the outside world. The worldly subjects are at the periphery of the curriculum and are mastered with the spirit of serving the world in a better way.

The curriculum framework for yoga for K-12 is in three categories:

1. Yoga as play – 3- 6 years exploration and wonder
2. Yoga as challenge - 7-11 years heroism, challenge and active fun
