Who We Are
Minds on Mats is a West Michigan based IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving school culture & student-teacher relationships through our collaborative yoga, mindfulness, and Social Emotional Learning programs.
Our Core Values
We operate based on four core values:
Culture of Leadership: Students taking leadership roles in their schools creates equity and accountability that break through barriers of race, gender, and culture.
Self-Care Strategies : Teacher and student self-care is an integral aspect of fostering a positive school culture. When we have strategies to care for ourselves, our hearts are full and we can easily fill others'.
Cultural Responsiveness: A unified approach to building and sustaining positive student-teacher relationships through culturally responsive teaching results in higher achievement and engagement.
Trauma-Informed Practices: Meeting our student's needs with trauma-informed practices supports healthy classrooms and school environments that are safe, effective, and caring.
