Imagine your classroom full of calm, yet alert and engaged students with strong self-awareness, and the capacity to navigate challenging and stressful situations thoughtfully and confidently!
In this seminar, I will share with you yoga and mindfulness-based tools to develop the inner resilience students need to navigate physical, mental and emotional stress, and overcome barriers to learning. I will show you how to bring these practices to your school in a simple and effective way. Yoga and mindfulness may help make your students’ lives healthier, and increase their capacity to learn effectively, handle distraction, manage challenging emotions, self-regulate behavior, and achieve personal and academic success!
This seminar balances practical activities with theory to be taught in the classroom without mats and prior yoga or mindfulness experience.
