Greencorps Youth Receive Introduction to Yoga

Greencorps Youth at Team Englewood learned that yoga is not only good for your body, it's great for your mind!  Deep breathing techniques were stressed during Thursday's yoga session with Tameka Lawson from iGrow Chicago.  Students learned that while one cannot control the body's immediate physical reaction to stressful situations, focusing on deep breathing can help control the emotional response.  The session, while brief, was very informative and the response was overwhelmingly positive.   Thanks, Tameka!!
