Want to explore mindfulness in your classroom but don’t know where to start?
In this course, you will learn a series of mindfulness practices that can be integrated into daily classroom and/or school routines. These practices will support both teachers and students in building a calm and caring learning community.
We will discuss the current research behind mindfulness, yoga, and mindful-movement, consider the implications for today’s schools, and have ample time to practice techniques you can use in your classroom.
This course will take place over two days with time in between for you to explore mindfulness practices with your students and reflect on your experiences.
No experience in yoga or a mindfulness practice required.
