The complex demands of daily life have created increased pressure, overwhelm, and disconnection. As a result, youth and adults have an urgent need for more physical, mental and emotional support in order to thrive. Many organizations lack accessible tools and resources to address these growing needs. Working at the system level is what’s needed in order to create sustainable change.
Our Foundation Training is for educators, social workers and related service providers. Learn how to integrate breathing, simple yoga-based movements, and social-emotional skill development activities into your environment. Help youth reduce stress, develop self-regulation to increase emotional stability.
When systems integrate Move Mindfully Practices:
- Educators feel confident they can create safe, effective learning environments.
- Students build readiness for learning as they feel seen, heard, and supported throughout the day.
- Practitioners maximize their effectiveness with an accessible mind body toolkit.
- Leaders have tools and strategies to promote a culture of wellbeing that maximizes organizational potential.
- Families feel supported by and connected to the organizations serving their children.
Here are the reasons you should join us at Move Mindfully Foundation Trainings!
Integrates into Existing Structures
Move Mindfully is not one more thing. It is the foundation, using brain science and nervous system regulation, that guides all other programs. Our hands-on tools augment existing frameworks and school curricula such as PBIS, RTI, Zones of Regulation®, Conscious Discipline®, Responsive Classroom® and Title 1. These tools also support therapeutic interventions for depression, anxiety, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
A Variety of Environments
Move Mindfully translates into a wide variety of systems. Every environment is unique and our Move Mindfully workshops offer tailored instruction for your organization’s specific youth populations. From traditional elementary, middle and high schools to school-based mental health, after school programs, and charter schools, we customize our delivery. Recently, we have also expanded our workshops for Early Childhood Educators. Although many of the strategies are similar, we have created an Early Childhood Card Deck that features age appropriate language and images.
Included in the training are the Move Mindfully Card Deck and Permission to Pause Poster set. These visuals allow participants to feel supported taking these strategies into environments for sustainability and fidelity throughout a building. The visuals also promote students using these strategies independently.
We know that in order for youth to learn self-regulation, it is necessary for staff to model what that looks like. Therefore, we begin each segment by offering participants an adult experience. This builds the toolkit necessary for co-regulation. Then, we discuss the strategies modeled. Finally, we allow participants to use the tools to practice. Through this presentation style, we introduce breathing, movement, rest, social emotional learning and the brain science that roots these practices.
Day 1 MoveMindfully®: Mindfulness, Movement & Social/Emotional Learning
This workshop enables participants to deepen their understanding of the impact of trauma and stress on both adults and youth. Using the latest in brain science research learn practical interventions to assist youth and adults with self-regulation, focus, de-escalation, and community connection.
Day 2 Move Mindfully®: Trauma Responsive Practices
Using knowledge of trauma, adverse childhood experiences (ACE’s) and mental health diagnoses, participants will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the power of mind-body practices for stress reduction, focus, cognitive flexibility and overall well being.
