Why mindfulness in the classroom?
    
Current brain, academic, and cardiovascular research
provide evidence that practices related specifically
to mindfulness and yoga and its breathing techniques offer:
~ 27% increase in GABA levels (calmness, anti-anxiety);
~ Improved academic achievement through learning how to improve focus and handle stress;
~ Increased academic interest through integrated
movement in traditionally sedentary academic settings.

What do we know specifically about MOSST based on research?
~ In all of the 4-20 week studies, students increased in physical flexibility, strength and abilities to regulate anxiety and energy levels;
~ Teachers experienced students handling stress and self-regulating themselves in more mindful, peaceful ways;
~ Parents witnessed kids cultivating calmer and more relaxed responses to stressful situations.
