As your students enter your venue there will be energy, music and engagement, before the assembly begins heads will be turning, students will be laughing. A quick activity sets the tone, of the program...Bill is introduced, but they have been having fun with him already...there is a feeling in the venue that this is going to be a lot of fun.  An opening activity, some playful interaction, a powerful short story followed by playful interaction. This is the YOGOWYPI Experience. A unique blend of humor, stories, playful activities, random interactions. It is all part of the plan to engage, teach, coach and learn positive strategies that will enhance the lives of your students and enrich the culture of your school.
