The intensive covers the entire Yoga Calm® wellness system, highlighting its basic principles and classroom tools including breathing exercises, simple yoga poses, social/emotional skill development activities, relaxation/storytelling processes and emotional guidance techniques. Participants will learn how to design interventions that help students with self-regulation, focus, learning readiness, social/emotional learning strategies, trauma and de-escalation. With further emphasis on neurological readiness, social/emotional learning and cross-curricular academic achievement, participants will investigate best practices in the newest brain research.
Through presentation, hands-on learning, reflection and discussion, you’ll learn how Yoga Calm uniquely integrates physical, mental and emotional skill-building. These support both learning and health while instilling lifelong habits in wellness. Case histories from social work counseling will be used to highlight and develop strategies useful for working with a broad range of student needs.
This workshop is for school teachers, social workers, counselors, treatment center staff, yoga teachers, OT’s, parents, and other adults that work with children.
