Event description
Explore the many benefits of yoga and mindfulness techniques, and how to utilize these techniques for interventions with children.

About this event

During stressful and uncertain times, mindfulness and calming techniques are critical for children to be able to self-regulate. Explore the many benefits of yoga and mindfulness techniques, and how to utilize these techniques for interventions with children both virtually and in-person. In this workshop, we will unpack the Social-Emotional Learning toolbox and discuss the development of coping skills. You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of the physiological ways that the brain and body interact.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • List practical, concrete tools in the Social-Emotional Learning toolbox that develop emotional literacy and increase capacity for self-regulation.
  • Identify child-friendly terms and phrases to explain the brain's physiology as it relates to managing emotion.
  • Describe in child-friendly terms the relationship between mind and body, self-regulation, impulse control, and positive social skills.
  • Demonstrate games and yoga poses that increase capacity for executive functioning.

Each workshop participant will receive The Anchor Bundle which includes the Mindful Yoga Breaks® Card Deck + Superhero Breath Card Deck + Dice Game (pdf) + Superhero Lesson Plans + Anchor Breath Poster + MYB Full Manual.

About the Trainer:

Lani Rosen-Gallagher (M.Ed., RYT 200, RCYT) recognized that children need balance and focus in their lives, and she began incorporating mindfulness and yoga into her classroom while teaching first grade nearly 20 years ago. Seeing the benefits of these techniques in practice, she has taught thousands from coast to coast how to bring mindfulness into the classroom. Collaborating with Jennifer Byer (RYT 200, RCYT), the pair created Mindful Yoga Breaks® as a way to help children self-regulate, and create calm, and focus. They have combined their efforts to bring this new mindful yoga program to schools, teachers, clinicians, parents, and students worldwide.

Fee:

$55 Early Bird Price.

$70 Standard Registration.

Continuing Education Credits:

Full attendance meets the qualifications for 3 hours of continuing education credits as required by the American Psychological Association. CTI is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists and maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Other disciplines such as social workers and counselors outside of California should check with their respective state board to assure acceptance of APA approved sponsors for CE credits.

In order to receive CE credits, participants must purchase a CE credit ticket ($10) in addition to registration (CE credit price is NOT included in registration). Full attendance is required in order to receive CE credits and no partial credit will be offered. Failure to meet this requirement will prohibit the Child Training Institute from issuing a CE certificate and no refund will be provided.

Registration and Cancellation:

Pre-registration is required. Cancellation requests emailed to the event manager prior to 11:59 pm on Tuesday, 8/3/21, will receive a full refund. No refunds for cancellation requests received on or after 8/4/21 regardless of the cause for cancellation including failure to join the meeting on the day of the training. If the training cannot be held due to circumstances beyond the hosts’ control (natural disaster, strike, fire, severe weather, illness of speaker, speaker cancellation, etc.) the event will be rescheduled, if possible, and the registration fee applied to that date. If rescheduling is not possible or the registrant cannot attend the rescheduled date, reimbursement will be provided less any actual costs accrued.

Instructions for Zoom will be emailed to all participants 30 minutes prior to the training.
