The FF2FF curriculum is focused on physical, social, emotional, and attentional self-regulating strategies and skills, in a social dynamic. FF2FF’s culturally competent curriculum is developed to systematically cultivate well-being, resilience and lifelong learning for improved grades, attendance, and behavior.
FF2FF features 36 yoga and mindfulness-based activities, divided into 9 modules: Self, emotions, Balance, culture, nutrition, coping, relationships, community, and leadership. Each activity includes illustrated instructions, discussion points, sub-activities, and educational tie-ins, for a total of more than 150 beneficial classroom practices.
The activities were specifically chosen to connect with students culturally and personally for them to develop their own practices that can be simple and sustainably implemented. Which means all activities can be brought into the youth’s communities and homes. FF2FF includes a mix of yoga postures, brain boosting movements, breath exercises, visualizations, mindfulness activities, creative movement and community-building activities. Wellness, positive psychology and character-building discussion points such as the power of positive thinking, nutrition, and being a peacemaker, address the whole child – physical, social and emotional, while improving learning-readiness – making this the most comprehensive program of its kind.
FF2FF is easy for teachers and students to use, and helps to create a more harmonious, learning-friendly school day. And its benefits go well beyond the classroom. FF2FF provides children with important skills they can use in and out of the classroom for life long health and well-being. Absolutely anyone can use and benefit from the FF2FF program – teachers/administrators, students, parents, therapists.
