Feeling better in our bodies, feeling better in our minds.
Whether you are a long time Classroom Teacher, PE Teacher, Kids Yoga Teacher, or Parent who teaches yoga to children, you deeply understand that how healthy you and your students are in body and mind will affect how you show up to teach, parent, and learn.
The reason why is because the way that we think affects how we feel in our body, and how we feel in our body affects the way we think. In the yoga world, we refer to this as the Mind-Body Connection.
The physical practice of yoga helps us feel better in our bodies, and when we feel better in our bodies, we feel better in our minds. This is why yoga is such an amazing resource to support our children’s Mind-Body Wellness.
For most of us, distance learning is a part of our 2020 - 2021 school year, and now more than ever we know it is a necessity that we continue to support our student’s mind-body wellness through the practice of yoga. But how can we share yoga practices with students successfully in the online space?
Join us for this workshop to learn how.
