It is no surprise that today, Yoga is making its way into educational institutions around the globe, including: before and after school classes, in classroom settings, as part of PE curriculum and pre-test taking. School-based educators, parents and Yoga Teachers alike are all witnessing the power of Yoga for Kids in their primary learning environment.

Jodi Komitor MA, former Special Education Teacher in the New York City school system and Founder of Next Generation Yoga, is a pioneer in bringing Yoga into the school setting.

The philosophy of NGY is that optimal learning occurs when multiple learning styles are incorporated into teaching methods. Next Generation Yoga offers an interdisciplinary approach that combines movement, creative arts, visual and auditory stimulus and social interactions with Yoga and education as the foundation.

quotation markWe are thrilled to have Next Generation Yoga as a part of our pre-school program. The Teacher often takes themes or projects we are doing and develops her lesson plan around it. We are fascinated by her ability to take a classic Yoga pose and weave in a story, all while enchanted children eagerly follow her cues.
