How to Reinforce SEL with Yoga & Mindfulness

In this toolkit, you will learn 5 ways to support social emotional learning in your classroom through simple, accessible yoga and mindfulness practices.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) emphasizes the importance of connection and community. When we allow SEL to be the foundation for our classrooms, we facilitate a supportive classroom environment where our students feel a sense of belonging, emotionally safe, and motivated. This doesn’t mean that we deprioritize academics in the 2022 – 23 school year. It simply means that SEL must be a part of our academic learning plan.

This toolkit offers 5 yoga and mindfulness tools to coincide with and reinforce the 5 Social Emotional Learning Competencies in your classroom and school communities.
