Class Act: Mindfulness at Baldwin Elementary

Sometimes we all need to take a breather and de-stress, and that includes students.

At Baldwin Elementary School in South Austin, not only does the campus have a mindfulness coach, but also a mindfulness room to help kids relax.

Some students who go to the Mindfulness Room struggle with anxiety or anger and are stressed out, but it's for anyone who need to decompress and where deep breathing is key. 

Baldwin's mindfulness coach Jennifer Ferrante also holds a "run club" to help kids burn off extra energy and then helps them relax through mindfulness practices such as breathing exercises and yoga.
