 Yoga and mindfulness reduce student anxiety.  

Coping skills are good.  However, it would be better to reduce stress that destroys children's health in the first place, and give them a more positive educational environment.  Children are biologically designed for learn, and to ensure that, it's hooked to the reward circuit.  If you're turning that into anxiety somehow, you are seriously fucking up the process.

The elementary school I volunteer at does yoga with the kids AND makes learning fun. Granted, I only saw the inside of kindergarten and first grade classrooms, so I dunno how the other classes are, but it looks promising.

That sounds very Terramagne to me.

In fact, a lot of alternative school systems either include yoga or use some other form of mindfulness. Montessori is pretty much ALL mindfulness woven into literally every bit of the system. Waldorf does it mostly with music and some esoterica.
