Mindful Classrooms: Weaving Mindfulness and Yoga into the Busy School Day

Teacher Certification:
Level One

New curriculum initiatives, increasing class size and rigorous standards: classroom teachers balance numerous responsibilities. In the midst of multiple teaching demands, how can we bring mindfulness and yoga to ourselves and our students? And how can we do this in ways that are accessible, engaging and easy-to-implement?

This workshop will explore mindfulness-based practices that can be integrated into our busy classroom days in ways that give us MORE time and that support our students in finding greater calm, focus, self-awareness and connection.

Join veteran teacher, mindfulness educator and Little Flower Yoga faculty member, Liz Slade, for a rich inquiry into how mindfulness and yoga can be woven into the fabric of classroom life.
Calling upon her own classroom experience and the wisdom of numerous colleagues, Liz will offer insights and specific activities that can ground and settle our students, enrich the classroom day and provide deep inner resources for students and teachers alike. Explore the impact of teacher presence, pauses and pacing, developmentally appropriate mindfulness and yoga games, using small moments, mindful transitions, teaching into self-awareness, and building student ownership.
You will walk away from this webinar with a greater understanding of how to bring mindfulness and yoga alive in your classroom.
