Adolescence is often viewed as a tumultuous period from a social perspective. Many students experience high stress during the middle school transitional period. In Georgia, over 40% of adolescents struggle to or are not able to access needed mental health treatment and counseling services. Mindfulness is derived from the practice of meditation and has been used to help students cope with stress and anxiety. The Holistic Life Foundation developed a 24-week mindful yoga curriculum that was piloted and implemented in after-school programs in Baltimore and surrounding neighborhoods. This proposal seeks to implement a pilot program using an adapted mindfulness curriculum in a community setting in the Atlanta metro area.
