Yoga and Mindfulness in the Classroom: Tools to Improve Self-regulation, Focus, and Resilience*

(Fall 2018 Conference)

Featuring Allison Morgan, MA, OTR, E-RYT

Friday, October 5, 2018, Registration begins @ 7:45 AM

Speaker: 8:15 AM – 12:30 PM

The Wilmington Montessori School
1400 Harvey Road, Wilmington DE 19810

Workshop Description: Are you noticing increased levels of stress/anxiety in your classroom? Do some students exhibit poor coping skills and inattention? Are you ready for a new approach to help students gain the inner to thrive, rather than simply survive? What if you had simple techniques to improve attention and develop emotional regulation while decreasing levels of stress and anxiety? In this workshop, you will learn simple, developmentally appropriate yoga and mindfulness tools for toddler through Middle School students. Discover how they can be easily infused into your current lessons or shared as short breaks during the day. Walk away with activities you can use tomorrow to develop self-awareness, engagement and connection while creating a calmer, more joyful classroom environment.
