Spectrum News 1NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams public school system is implementing yoga in the classroom. 

Superintendent Barbara Malkas often spends part of her morning teaching her own teachers about the art of yoga.

She works with Breathe for Change, an organization helping teach educators yoga and strategies for social and emotional learning to bring into the classroom.

“So, this program starts with the educator starts with the person who will be the facilitator because it’s just like in medical practice, if we don’t heal ourselves how can we heal others," said Malkas.
