BODHI Buds is a leading provider of in-school yoga in Montreal, complementing the regular school curriculum by fostering health, happiness and wellness for youth, teachers and support staff.
Why Yoga at School?
Students of all ages face major challenges at school. Not only do they experience pressures related to academic performance, there is often added stress related to discovering their identity, bullying, and finding a way to fit in. The BODHI Buds program teaches yoga not only as a method to improve the physical health of students, but also to increase their self-confidence, self-esteem, and overall mental and emotional well-being.

“The “funwork” was useful for me because it helped me use more of my energy on something, and accomplish it better than if I didn’t use my full brain power”

“Marymount Academy thoroughly enjoyed having BODHI come to our school to present a 3 day meditation seminar to our Sec V Leadership class. Their speakers were very animated and it was evident that they are passionate about their work. I was very impressed with the ability of the animators to connect with our students in such a short period of time.”
