Relationship Building through the Run/Yoga Club

Our inquiry question was -

How can a running and yoga program promote the mental and physical well-being of our students?

Chase Secondary School started a Run & Yoga Club for their students. Happily staff members often joined in as well. Students reported increased confidence and motivation in their daily lives, improved sense of connection and drastically decreasing anxiety.
