Description

This 4 HOUR Professional Development workshop empowers participants to effectively utilise 5-15 minute yoga sessions, or “yoga breaks,” to increase self-awareness and self-regulation for students and teachers alike. Although designed for the academic environment, our yoga breaks can be easily adapted to different environments and settings, including a car ride to soccer practice, a medical office, or around the dinner table.

You will learn and practice yoga tools to effectively promote health, learning, and achievement. This workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of how to identify challenging times during your child or teen’s day, and successfully utilize yoga tools to shift them into a more positive state of mind.

Focus: Ages 3 to 18 / Grades Pre-K to 12th
