 A growing body of evidence suggests that yoga and mindfulness education in schools improves learning readiness and social, emotional and physical health. In this workshop appropriate for educators, school counselors, administrators and therapists, we will explore in depth the benefits of yoga, mindfulness and health education and their practical applications in the typical classroom setting. A classroom-appropriate mix of yoga-based motor breaks, brain boosting movements, breath exercises, visualizations, mindfulness activities, creative movement and community-building games will be shared and experienced. Wellness and character-building discussion points such as the power of positive thinking, nutrition and being a peacemaker, address the whole child and also many school initiatives such as bullying prevention, health and wellness and social and emotional education. Teachers who implement Yoga 4 Classrooms® traditionally report that taking as little as 30 seconds to 5 minutes to practice these simple tools throughout the day helps their class community learn to self-regulate, leading to a more positive, peaceful, productive school day...not to mention happier, more resilient students. The workshop utilizes the 230 page, full-color Yoga 4 Classrooms® Program Guide and Yoga 4 Classrooms® Activity Card Deck, ensuring the program is both easy to use and sustainable for long-term implementation. No yoga experience is required. As we will be simulating a classroom experience, please wear your regular, comfortable clothing, keep your shoes on, and leave your yoga mat at home.
