Adults who play chess or are learning to play could have extra motivation for social contact and the prevention of loneliness and isolation. Chess exercises the mind and memory, staving off dementia and other degenerative conditions. Kids and their parents from the Program “Chess&Yoga for kids” are excellent examples of mixing age groups and socioeconomic backgrounds to improve social and cognitive development.

Program : YOGA and CHESS for Kids

This Program was successfully offered at the “Batshaw Youth Family Centers”, Dawson Alternative School for a period of 5 years and at Meadowbrook School in Lachine. It Won an award in 2005 from the Lester B Pierson School Board & was nominated for an award in 2005 from “Volunteer in Action” Quebec. Also, most recently was apply at OM West, Vanakays, Community centers and Art Coffee Gallery .

After years of teaching practice, I have chosen this combination of mental and physical art because they are complementary and supportive to one another in a way that stimulates and encourages healthy and functional development. Children who do the Program well will benefit in terms of improved self-esteem, as well as having the chance to make friends who share their interest. Children also learn concentration, logical thought, planning, pattern recognition, self-discipline, taking responsibility for their own mistakes.

Chess lessons include: 3 levels

  • Learning the rules and the principles of chess game; Strategies and tactics
  • Chess Quizzes and tournaments; Practice during the chess lesson
  • Homework; Q cards; Presentation;
  • Evaluation in the end of the level
