Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, shares the story of Laura Castagnino, manager of the Washington DC Dahn Yoga center who shared the benefits of Dahn Yoga meditation with students at her alma mater, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology.
The recent Dahn Yoga Life feature article, “Meditation for High School Stress” introduces readers to Castagnino who recently returned to her former high school to share her life experience with meditation and of how meditation and yoga can be used to manage the stresses of school and life. The article states that Castagnino offered up Brain Wave Vibration, breathing techniques and visualization as tools to help in realizing goals. “I wanted to give them hope that, whatever they want to do, they have the resources to do it. I hope they can create whatever they want for themselves,” she said.
Also of interest is a mention of senior student, Zach Hosseinipour who founded the Mind Body Medicine Society at the school. The club has grown from a few early participants to several dozen members. It was this group that invited Castagnino to speak. Read this heartwarming story of one former student’s efforts to give back to the school that influenced her life’s path.
