Body-Mind Education

Something that stands out to me about BME is the idea of mindfulness... it was a lot of introspection that I'd never have ever done before. It was just very rewarding both mentally and physically. I think it taught me a lot of important values like team work, like persistence and being calm in yoga.... I really enjoyed just getting in tune with my mind and body.

Philosophy

Embodiment is a process of intimately knowing each aspect of ourselves, experiencing our connection to the whole, and taking active responsibility for how we show up for ourselves and others as we move through the world. Body-Mind Education nurtures students’ capacity to be active in their own social, emotional, and physical wellbeing, providing tools for developing self-awareness, building positive relationships with self and others, and learning to navigate the joys and challenges of high school with perspective, kindness, and wisdom. Placing the body at the heart of learning, Body-Mind Education encourages movement, reflection, interaction, play, and experimentation, ultimately helping students cultivate habits of body and mind that will sustain them through the many terrains their lives will offer.
