Waterloo elementary school teacher starts yoga in the classroom

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

We all remember how stressful school can be.

There's an eastern Iowa classroom that's finding a new way to prepare for the day.

They're doing yoga!

Mrs. Ritter at Kingsley Elementary started the idea. She says she loves yoga and sometimes her 5th graders come to school really energetic, or really tired, or even nervous before a big test. Yoga can really help get them in the right mood for the day.

She says it also helps her students bond and get to know each other. 

Right now just Mrs. Ritter's 5th grade class does yoga in the morning, but she says there are plans to hopefully expand yoga to some other classrooms and students.

Mrs. Ritter says she was able to buy yoga mats and yoga balls recently after winning last month's Cedar Valley Tools for Schools.
