2 Hour Tools for Teachers Workshop

This workshop equips you with a broad variety of basic principles and tools to implement short yoga breaks with children and teens. You will learn and practice yoga tools to effectively promote health, learning, and achievement. This workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of how to effectively utilize yoga tools to support student learning and achievement.

Our job at Yoga Ed. is to equip you with the tools you need to facilitate health and wellness for the children and teens in your life, as well as for yourself. Designed for educators, this workshop empowers participants to effectively utilize five to fifteen minute yoga sessions, or “yoga breaks,” to increase self-awareness and self-regulation for students and teachers alike. Although designed for the academic environment, our yoga breaks can be easily utilized throughout the school day. Participants will also learn the broad physical, cognitive, social, and emotional benefits of integrating breathing exercises, yoga poses, and relaxation into the classroom. All yoga tool activities require no previous yoga experience, extra equipment, or space.
