|14-Jan-2017||Creating the Mindful Classroom |
[All: Early Childhood through Middle School]
In this one-day workshop, we'll take the concept of mindfulness from an internal personal practice to developmentally appropriate classroom applications. Because we can’t teach it unless we understand it, we’ll begin the day exploring what mindfulness is and how we can benefit personally as teachers from a mindful outlook. Then, we’ll explore age appropriate techniques to take into the classroom in order to create a mindful space with our students. A truly awake and present classroom benefits both the teacher and the student. So, we’ll delve into awareness exercises involving the breath, the body, and of course, the mind. You’ll have the opportunity to sample pranayama practice (yogic breath work), mindful listening and mindful vision. We’ll also take some time to explore eating mindfully and we’ll even take a mindful walk. By the end of the day, you will have a practical understanding of mindfulness so that you may create and deepen your own mindful practice as well as be prepared to share mindfulness in your classroom.
