This past week, Fox News 5 reported that New York City’s public schools will be required to introduce mindful breathing exercises for students from grades K through 12, according to Mayor Eric Adams. “It’s a really simple practice that can balance out your nervous system,” said Radha Metro-Midkiff, Executive Director of the Integral Yoga Institute of New York. “Inhale to a count of 4 and exhale to a count of 4. Just that simple amount of breathing that we just did literally can start to reverse the stress response.”
