dc.description.abstract For the past decade, research has indicated that working through social-emotional issues productively within a specific curriculum has a very positive effect on classroom behavior, learning, and achievement (Durlak, Weissberg, & Pachan, 2010; Sklad, Diekstra, Ritter, Ben, & Gravesteijn, 2012). Combining mindfulness within a social-emotional curriculum has been shown to develop emotional balance, improve attention and concentration, and reduce anxiety (de la Fuente-Arias, 2010; Salvador, & Franco, 2010; Goleman & Davidson, 2017; Schoeberlein David, & Sheth, 2012). This mixed-methods study investigated the effects of the Mindfulness Yoga Social-Emotional Learning Focus: MYSELF Intervention (Hande, 2020) on the development of self-regulation strategies for fifth-grade students through a mindfulness intervention. The intervention group received 35 minutes of the MYSELF Intervention activities two days a week during an eight-week period. A pre/post survey was administered. Survey scores for the intervention group were compared to determine the results of the intervention. Quantitative measures included student pre and post survey. Qualitative measures included teacher pre and post semi-structured interviews and researcher journal reflections. The researchers expected the results to have increased in the post-survey after the intervention was completed. Although the effect was not statistically significant, the intervention provided indicated that students and teachers were using the mindfulness strategies to support their well-being. en_US
