OUR OWN Wellness Spaces is a classroom retrofit initiative that launched in 2022. Focused on developing mentally fit students through meditation, yoga, and nutrition, our goal is to change how schools perceive and participate in health and wellness activities. Developed and curated by OUR OWN, these spaces will be located in classrooms across the nation that will allow students and educators to cultivate moments of wellness.
The OUR OWN Wellness Spaces go beyond daily in school use. Our spaces meet the demands of educators and need of their students after school, which includes tutoring, physical fitness and often overlooked…nutrition. In addition, we reimagine curriculum, student driven learning opportunities and career pathways through the lens of mental health. Our spaces shift the paradigm, understanding that kids spend an average of 6-8 hours a day and almost 180 days per year in school…our approach can’t be mediocre. Our programming is not just engaging but relatable and has a proven track record of success.
