With learning and emotional disabilities increasing, and a pandemic that impacted students globally — educators and parents are looking for alternatives to medication to help support students academic and social emotional learning. Students face many more academic and emotional challenges in the classroom than ever before.  

 Classroom Om provides a quick and convenient way for teachers to implement guided meditation into their classroom routine with positive results. Developed by Laura Basili, a teacher with over 15 years experience, this program can be used in the classroom and at home as part of a daily practice.   

 Why Meditation?  Laura studies and practices meditation, and she has experienced first hand the benefits of calming the mind while increasing self-awareness.  She recognized a need to implement an educational form of guided meditation into her teaching practice; and observed the positive results meditation had with her own students.  That experience inspired her to create Classroom OM.  

It is designed with students, teachers and parents in mind.   

 Laura Basili is a certified Reading Specialist and Special Education teacher and an aspiring voiceover artist who has done voice work for local artists and vendors in the Hudson Valley.
