Amanda Gamble, a registered yoga instructor with Fire Horse Yoga Studio in Jasper, taught 13 children various poses and breathing exercises during the hour-long class. “I thought this would be great to use with kids in the school system,” said Gamble, a school psychologist who uses yoga during the school year. “Teaching mindfulness and breathing exercises helps with stress.”
