What if you had the tools that would enhance focus and attention, ease anxiety, and improve confidence, self-esteem and academic performance? During this live webcast, you will learn simple, developmentally appropriate yoga and mindfulness tools that can be immediately integrated into your daily curriculum. These skills are a proven and effective way to promote self-regulation ability, learning readiness, and resilience while cultivating a positive, peaceful, productive classroom.

Through the framework of – Noticing, Mindful Choice, Practice, Reflection, Integration – you will learn how to empower your students and yourself with increased self-awareness, the foundation for the development of self-regulation skills and cognitive control. Through 67 simple yoga and mindfulness-based activities designed to engage the whole child, you will help your students move from a state of anxiety and dysregulation to a state of engagement, control, and connectedness. All activities are specially chosen for their suitability for the typical classroom space and schedule and can be done standing beside or sitting at desks, while hands and bodies remain off the floor. Yoga 4 Classrooms is easy for teachers, students, and therapists to use, and helps to create a more harmonious, learning-friendly school day.
