Yoga Tuesday with Marquis Studios

Greetings PS 101 Families:

It’s that time again for our weekly Tuesday Time with YOGA for PS 101K students/families. During yoga, the body goes through a full range and variety of motion that are associated with stress or poor postural habits. Practicing yoga helps provide a foundation and tools to building good habits, such as discipline, self-inquiry, and nonattachment.

This exercise is also a pathway to empower you to make conscious choices to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Today, yoga refers to greater internal states, such as clarity, peace, and happiness. Take advantage of our partnership with Marquis Studios and work alongside Yoga Certified Trainer, Ms. Sari to try these poses/techniques in your home.

Please encourage your child to participate in this learning experience and join in the family fun together.

Have fun to all of our yogis and yoginis: Session 8 links:
