The research question addressed in this project was: How can high schools use yoga to foster social and emotional learning in students of all backgrounds? The author uses her personal teaching experiences to develop social and emotional learning (SEL) standards for public high schools in Minnesota. She then creates a yoga-based curriculum that meets those standards. The curriculum includes four units: 1) SelfAwareness, 2) Self-Management, 3) Social Awareness, and 4) Social Management. Each unit is intended to develop students’ self-regulatory skills and executive functioning skills while helping students create present-moment focus, develop mindfulness skills, develop tolerance, build curiosity, integrate aspects of experience, increase self-confidence, and strengthen connections to others.
