Event description

Description

Teachers today are held accountable for student’s achievement even when multiple factors beyond their control influence student’s capacity to achieve. We know from research that children today are experiencing stress at new levels we also know that a stressed brain inhibits learning.

While the natural order of the classroom has always been for students to sit, sitting for long periods of time is often inappropriate for the developmental needs of our children and counterintuitive to what brain science says maximizes academic success.

Our bodies were designed to move and current research connects movement based practices in the schools to decreased stress, increased awareness and attention, and improved learning readiness.

Please join me for this 2-hour workshop where together we will explore the need for movement based practices in schools and the relationship to priming your students for learning. This workshop will inspire you to bring simple movements, breathwork, meditation and relaxation practices into your classroom. There’s absolutely no yoga experience required to attend this workshop. Space is limited so if you feel called to attend, please register! Come in comfortable clothes, bring a notebook and something to write with and we’ll have a pot of hot water and tea waiting for you! Workshop/$40 +processing fee.
