Yoga Ed.™ was founded in 2002 by Tara Guber and Leah Kalish. It is known throughout the education and yoga communities as the yoga program for schools. Yoga Ed.™ develops health/wellness programs and materials that utilize the physiological, emotional and educational benefits of yoga and creative play, and then distributes them to children, teachers, and parents through schools and communities nationwide.

The Yoga Ed.™ K-8 Program is a nationally recognized, cost-effective health and fitness program for schools that fulfills the National Challenge PE standards. Yoga Ed. has been shown to enhance student focus, concentration, learning readiness and self-discipline. In this comprehensive 36-week curriculum, the practice of yoga is age-appropriately integrated with an active, playful and scientific exploration of the body, mind and self. The Yoga Ed.™ program is taught in grades Pre-K all the way through high school.

Yoga Ed.™ Tools for Teachers trains classroom teachers to use simple yoga-based mind-body integration techniques as effective behavior and classroom management activities. Specifically designed for the classroom, needing no extra space or equipment, Yoga Tools consist of 5-15 minute breath and movement sequences, games and visualizations that anyone can do to immediately feel more attentive, energized and calm. Yoga Tools help teachers create a more focused, calm, harmonious environment and support students in feeling ready and able to learn. Implementing both Yoga Ed. programs enables students and teachers to decrease stress, increase well-being and improve responsible behavior and academic achievement.

Tools for Teachers was created, because classroom teachers began requesting students after yoga class. Thus, the founder and program director created Tools for Teachers so that the entire school could be yoga educated.
