Creating a Mindful Classroom: Yoga in the Classroom (VIRTUAL)
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:Join Jennie Abbot for this interactive and dynamic workshop for Educators. In this workshop you learn a variety of hands on activities to easily integrate yoga and mindfulness into the home, classroom or therapeutic environment. Practical tools such as kid-friendly breathing techniques, mindful movement activities, games for connection and community and guided relaxations will be demonstrated in ways that are easy to implement, bringing joyful connection to children’s lives. Children’s Yoga helps to develop essential tools such as self-regulation, a strong mind-body connection, and introduces skills that help children to find a sense of inner-calm. These tools are gifts that can transform the lives of the children that receive them. Come join us for this fun and interactive introduction to mindful yoga for children. Workshop attendees will receive a 58 page Resource Guide in addition to the workshop.
