Covenant BodyMind Initiative

Curriculum

The Covenant BodyMind Initiative school curriculum translates the vision of the program through in depth, interactive lesson plans. Each lesson includes the objective and topics to be addressed, supplies needed, and the lesson outline. Schools have emerged as one of the best settings for implementation of a wellness program. Health and education both promote the optimal well-being of the child, therefore combining the efforts of each sector more effectively result in a potent partnership for promoting health and learning (Flynn, et al., 2006).
