Bright Futures: Yoga & Mindfulness Training For People Who Work With Kids
For students and teachers alike, school can be a stressful place. Whether you’re studying for a math test, trying to get along with your peers, or dealing with an overcrowded classroom, chronic stress inhibits our ability to show up as our best selves. That’s why we are excited to share the invaluable resource of mindfulness through our first Yoga and Mindfulness Training.
Who is it for?
This training is designed for teachers and educators who work with K-8 children.
Why does it matter?
A growing body of research shows that mindfulness benefits both students and teachers. For students, mindfulness practices promote emotional regulation, compassion and focus, while reducing students’ stress and anxiety. For teachers, too, mindfulness can reduce stress, help prevent burn-out, and offer a new way of interacting with students.
What will participants learn?
Participants will learn how to effectively and confidently integrate mindfulness into their learning environment. We will discuss how to read the “mood” of the room and choose an appropriate mindfulness exercise. Teachers will leave with a set of concrete, research-informed practices that they can use from day one of the school year.
