Philly school’s new ‘calming room’ offers yoga mats, drawing, and a ‘brain break’

Can you imagine if every school had a room like this? For all children, but especially those that may be struggling to control their emotions or needs a peaceful sanctuary away from what can seem so incredibly overwhelming at times. 🙏🏼
“There’s an area for yoga, an art station for drawing, and a reading couch with books on meditation and photography. In another corner, plush floor cushions offer students a place to sit and listen to pre-loaded iPods, which offer self-guided meditation tracks and soothing music.
The space is meant for solitary reflection and relaxation. The only place where students are allowed to speak to one another is in the discussion circle, a ring of low-slung seats in the middle of the room.”
