Children received extra help on work from their regular school. They also learned yoga such as tandem Apple Tree and Warrior postures that calmed wiggly bodies. Through deep breathing exercises, and months of practice, we eventually got the room of 25 kids to sit for over a minute in (mostly) silent meditation.
