Why Yoga and Mindfulness?

According to recent studies, 54% of children will develop some kind of anxiety disorder—and the flip side of anxiety is depression. By introducing mindfulness and yoga to children at an early age, we can empower them with the tools that will support their well-being for the rest of their lives.

Here is what you will learn this weekend:

  • How to teach engaging kids’ yoga and mindfulness content that will create magical discipline in the classroom
  • Information about kids’ development and anatomy, in order to teach a safe class
  • Background on the practice of yoga and how it relates to children and adults
  • Background on mindfulness and the brain, including executive function and physiology
  • Classroom management techniques
  • How to begin to use yoga and mindfulness to support children with special needs and ADHD
  • Fifteen universal mindfulness tools that bring instant calm and focus to children (and adults!) anytime, anywhere
  • How to create your own mindfulness moments, so you can personalize teaching to your classroom or your individual students
  • How to teach 24 popular kids’ yoga poses
  • As we work, learn how yoga can relate to other teaching concepts in the classroom, like STEM, math, the natural world, and more
  • An introduction to aromatherapy and how to use it with children
  • How to structure your class
  • An introduction to the business of kids yoga
  • Yoga is a lifestyle, and as we work you will receive fresh inspiration and powerful tools to bring more peace and mindfulness into your own life
