At schools we learn about important principles of science such as gravity; about principles of arts such as creativity; and about principles of sports such as teamwork.
What we sometimes forget to impart are the principles of compassion, forgiveness, and tolerance.
These are indeed principles. Because their value has been proven objectively by scientific studies. Evidence-based, peer-reviewed, published studies show that they help:
* Quiet the mind, reduce stress, and stress related ailments such as heart disease and hypertension (high blood pressure). 
* Reduce and REVERSE heart disease without medication. 
* Reduce anger, aggression, violence, and judgmentalness such as hatred, grudges, and vengefulness. 
* Increase Meta-cognition. This is your ability to estimate your own abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. The more accurate your self-assessment, the better your chances of success. 
Yoga and meditation are scientifically proven to reduce many effects of stress and counteract hatred and violence.
Yoga and meditation can make schools a safer place and can save lives! They can help heal our world.
We can protect our teens and other loved ones from suicide, depression, anxiety, inferiority complex, violence, bullying, and failure. We can help students live more balanced and holistic life styles. We can help them steer away from drugs and excessive alcohol.
