MINDFUL MOVES! for the Classroom: Frequently Asked Questions
I see reference to this being a pilot program? What does that mean?
MINDFUL MOVES!™ for the Classroom is the first program in development of the MINDFUL MOVES!™ brand. As we launch this program, we have several immediate goals in mind: 1) offer a great, dynamic training with classroom materials at a discounted rate, knowing that this is in “beta format” without lacking in quality or content 2) keep the group size small in order to provide comprehensive support to all participants 3) collect valuable feedback from pilot participants and use this feedback to help us prepare for our full launch in the Fall 2017.
If this is a pilot, how do I know this is worth my while?
This training has been developed by 3 well-seasoned professionals in the field mindfulness, movement, and education. In addition to having over 45 years combined experience in their respective professions, each facilitator is highly-skilled in the area of professional development for educational, somatic [movement], and therapeutic professionals.
Further, this training has been designed with you, the educator, and your students in mind. You will learn theory, but you will also learn how to apply this theory immediately in your classroom. You will receive tangible, user-friendly resources. This is a training that lends itself to practical application in your classroom and helps you build best practices around implementation of movement and mindfulness exercises for your students AND yourselves.
Finally, we are committed to providing you with ongoing support for implementation. All 3 MINDFUL MOVES! facilitators will be available to answer your questions and provide guidance as you move forward.
Is this training available for graduate credits?

I live out of the area. Can I take this training online?
