health, clarity, and connection
to your school
Today’s students face tremendous pressure to achieve. This pressure often results in feelings that are overwhelming. Our staff are experienced educators in K-12 as well as in private schools. We know the field of public school education, and offer techniques we have personally used in our own classrooms.
Our customized wellness program can save your school money and improve staff health & job satisfaction. Help your employees stay happy and healthy and reduce staff turnover through a combination of customizable preventive care offerings including yoga, mindfulness, meditation, stress-management, lifestyle & relationship education.
From Lansing Schools:
"It's a pleasure working with the folks at Yoga Farm.
They continue to offer wonderful classes and packages to our school district, and it's clear that they truly want to create an all-inclusive, safe and positive environment for everyone. Their passion for health and wellness is evident in the way they teach, and in every interaction I have had with them. I am looking forward to more wonderful classes this year!"
— Melissa Pope, Wellness Coordinator, Lansing Central School District
