Schools in Scranton School District, including John Adams and Charles Sumner Elementary, are implementing yoga and mindfulness as an effort to promote wellbeing. According to PAHomepage, this focus on mental health and coping with anxiety was prompted by the increased stress students may be feeling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. By partnering with Yoga West, Northeastern Educational Intermediate Unit-19 is able to provide live sessions and per-recorded virtual sessions for students who are learning online or in a hybrid model.
