About the Take 5 Program

A research developed program designed to help students, teachers, and parents learn to self-regulate emotions and behavior. TAKE 5 was designed to help students, teachers, and parents learn to self-regulate and navigate the demands of our ever-changing environment. This comprehensive program enables us all to better understand and take control of violence and aggression.


The mission of TAKE 5 is to manage childhood obesity, stress, self-abuse, bullying, and violent behavior of all kinds. TAKE 5 teachers guide youth to:


• Manage stress and fight obesity

• Quiet the mind to become more receptive to learning

• Build self-awareness

• Improve confidence and self-esteem

• Reduce anxiety, depression and anger


This comprehensive program enables us all to better understand and take control of violence and aggression. The use of breathing practices, concentration techniques, drawing/journaling, and exercise/movement are the tools we use to bring greater awareness to body, mind, and internal conflict.


TAKE 5 Curriculum:

5 deep breaths or 5 minutes of breath work

5 sets of exercises or 5 minutes of movement

5 minutes of drawing or journaling

5 minutes of concentration or quiet time

TAKE 5 was developed by Sheila Palmquist, Founder and Director of Lincoln Yoga Center, E-RYT500, RPYT, RCYT. Sheila has 12 years of experience instructing yoga to children and adults. The inspiration for the TAKE 5 program is based on the psychology of yoga and the need for a holistic approach to childhood mental wellness in the public school system.

Journal Star Article on Take 5

"Imagine a school without a timeout room. A school where kids are not banished to the hallway for misbehavior. A world where kids as young as 3 recognize when they need to Take 5 and get in control of their feelings and frustration without disturbing or hurting anyone else.

Eleven years ago, Sheila Palmquist, owner of Lincoln Yoga Center and a parent, began to notice how children were sent to the hallway, the office or a special isolation room when they "lost it" at school. She listened as they told her they “were bad,” “stupid” and “hated.

Sheila Palmquist created TAKE 5 -- a yoga course for kids as young as 6. The premise is simple -- teach children yoga-based breathing practices, concentration techniques, exercises/movements and conflict-resolution skills allowing them to quell the inner turmoil in just five minutes.


The program was the focus of a study by University of Nebraska-Lincoln on development of children’s cognition and attention, focusing in part on how yoga can improve attention in preschool-age and elementary-age children.

Take 5 also is part of Lincoln Parks and Recreation’s summer programming. Last year 800 youth learned the techniques.

Since then, Palmquist has trained teachers, parents, counselors and anyone else interested in the techniques, so they in turn can teach the skills to students. Palmquist also visits schools and kids programs, leading youngsters in yoga lessons for self control, self-awareness and inner calm. Take 5 is based on five 5-minute exercises that allow youth to choose the best way to handle their stress."

Testimonials:

"Just tonight I did it in the living room with my daughters age 6, 7 and 10 and it was such a hit! I think we all appreciated the wonderful mix of affirmations and movements.

 

It was obvious to see the joy you took in leading the kids and it helped me have a bit more patience and humour with my own (after a long day) - thank you for taking the time to create and post it, I'm sure we will be following along with it again soon." -Laura
