Nourishing the Nurturer – Online Workshop
his workshop supports educators inside and outside the classroom. We will demonstrate mindfulness games and methods to teach children an awareness of the body, thoughts and emotions. These techniques can help improve focus, emotional regulation, resilience and a sense of kindness for oneself as well as others. We will also explore how to incorporate topics such as compassio and fear into the learning curriculum as well as an educator’s personal practice. We know that when children have healthy coping skills, the classroom is a happier and more productive environment for the teacher too!
The second half of the workshop is just for you – the educators! We will explore self-care, mindful communication, and self-compassion. This portion will provide soothing ways for educators to nurture themselves throughout the day with breath and supportive therapeutic touch. You will experience a gentle guided meditation to end the session (no previous experience necessary).Participants will also be gifted a recorded meditation guided by Gina to revisit anytime
