In sharing our OHMazing® mission—Feel, Connect, Act to Heal—we teach and support social justice, inclusion, and equity on and off the yoga mat.

“There is no more perfect time to provide our students and staff with tools for mindfulness, movement and kind, respectful interactions. In a world where many things are out of our control, our thoughts, breath and actions are ours to choose. MOSST brings awareness and options for us to better take care of ourselves and others. Thank you, Beth Reese and Yoginos Yoga for Youth, for this gift to our community at a time when we need it the most.”

Mindful & OHMazing® Strategies for Students and Teachers (MOSST)

Each day, students and teachers are faced with both visible and invisible stressors such as test anxiety, bullying, food insecurity, generational and situational trauma, as well as the biological transformations that naturally occur from birth to adulthood. These stressors can lead to depression, anxiety, anger management issues, difficulties with focus and attention, poor academic performance, and physical health problems. Research has shown that mindfulness and breath awareness can help students mitigate the effects of internal and external stressors so that they can participate fully in school and in life.

The MOSST curriculum toolkit supports the implementation and integration of a community-wide skill set of research-based and trauma-informed Mindfulness life-skills. These life-skills include tools and strategies such as intentional breathing, focused attention on thoughts and sensations, and movement routines that create compassionate self-regulation of emotions and energy levels.

MOSST is deliverable online live and recorded, in-person, or a hybrid approach, and includes:
