Mindful Minutes for Schools is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that funds educational opportunities for children and their educators in the greater Dubuque area to build skills with a unique curriculum that guides young minds and bodies into practices of mindfulness, reflection and emotional health through the practices of yoga. Teachings are offered during the traditional school day, practiced in an integrative manner in the hands of licensed educators. The goal however, is for children to apply these lessons inside and outside the classroom for years to come.
There has been extensive research in the last decade that connects these practices to mental and emotional wellness for our children as they grow into adulthood. In our fast paced, anxiety prone, hectic world, these tools help children of all income levels, races, cultures, religions and educational levels to gain life skills that otherwise are not taught in traditional classroom settings.
"The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this lifetime."
The mission of Mindful Minutes for Schools is to leverage community resources which will foster opportunities for children to incorporate yoga and mindfulness in both school and daily life.
We strive to teach children mindfulness, reflection and emotional health through the practices of yoga.
