Bent On Learning was created to enhance the commendable job that New York City schoolteachers and administrators do every day with the minimal resources they have at their disposal.
The schools we work with are specially selected based on need; they’re the ones hit hardest by budget cuts and overcrowding, where children are economically disadvantaged or have special needs, and where many are now limited to a single gym class per week. Our program helps mitigate this situation by offering valuable physical activity to help support more children.
Teach with Us
Not only do our yoga teachers love working with kids, they undergo a special Bent On Learning teachers’ training and certification program consisting of two key components: learning how to create the space for yoga in the classroom and building a supportive classroom community. As an organization, we’re proud to say that ours are not just yoga teachers, but dedicated, nurturing professionals who are as enthusiastic about helping children as they are about the benefits of yoga itself.
