Think Yoga and Mindfulness in Public Schools is a No-Brainer? Think Again – Rewire.News

Professor Candy Gunther Brown of Indiana University discusses many of the current issues surrounding the implementation of yoga and mindfulness in the public school in her article at Rewire.News, “Think Yoga and Mindfulness in Public Schools Are a No-Brainer? Think Again.”  She discusses the legal, spiritual, and scientific issues surrounding the Eastern practices of yoga and mindfulness in the public schools and provides extensive references to recent articles and research on the subject. 

Dr. Brown, the author of “The Healing Gods: Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Christian America,” has been an expert witness in several court cases regarding the implementation of spiritually based programs in the public schools.  She has recently published an exhaustive scholarly work on the topic that was released this month by University of North Carolina Press titled, “Debating Yoga and Mindfulness in Public Schools: Reforming Secular Education or Reestablishing Religion?”
