Little Flower Yoga has provided and is continuing to provide large scale trainings to faculty and staff at the Pelham Schools. The participants of the training were very engaged throughout the entire experience and were clearly motivated by what they learned as they were observed to implement their new tools immediately in their own classrooms. These trainings have really spring-boarded a change in the culture throughout our schools.

Mental Health Support

Mindfulness and yoga-based practices have been shown to increase attention; improve self-regulation and self-compassion; increase coping; decrease levels of depressive symptoms, stress, and anxiety; and create a sense of calm in children of all ages.

The School Wellness Project supports school-based mental health providers including social workers, occupational therapists, counselors, special education professionals  and psychologists.

We provide training and support to clinical teams and targeted classes and assemblies for students. 


My colleagues, fellow teachers, and administrators have been amazed by Little Flower Yoga's services. Recently, a long-time mindfulness teacher and our curriculum director observed a session led by a staff member from Little Flower Yoga and they were incredibly pleased with the outcome. I am confident that the staff at Little Flower Yoga is capable of meeting the needs of students in order to help them learn tools to manage their stress, become more mindful, and learn self-care skills.
