Event description

Description

This workshop will explore the benefits of yoga and mindfulness techniques, and how to utilize them for interventions with children. We will unpack the Social Emotional Learning toolbox and discuss the development of coping skills. Lastly, we will discuss the physiological ways that the brain and body interact.

At the conclusion of this workshop, 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 leave with their own deck of Mindful Yoga Breaks® Cards.

Expert Trainer:
Lani Rosen-Gallagher (M.Ed., RYT 200, RCYT)
, Recognizing that children need balance and focus in their lives, Lani began incorporating mindfulness and yoga into her classroom while teaching first grade nearly 20 years ago. Seeing the benefits, she has taught thousands from coast to coast. Collaborating with Jennifer Byer (RYT 200, RCYT) the pair have 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.
