BULLYING IN SCHOOLS
According to a 2001 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, bullying and aggressive behavior are on the rise in American schools. CALMING KIDS is an effective solution, training school teachers, counselors, yoga teachers, and students how to use non-denominational yoga techniques to increase concentration, relaxation, and fitness as a means promoting non-violent communication and anger management.
 
In addition to teaching school children of all ages and grades, Dee offers a yoga teacher training to young adult students interested in spreading this important body of material.
