Course Description:

An Integrated Approach to Wellness 2: Physical Connections to Learning continues to expand and deepen knowledge of 20 new physical activities and games to safely develop strength, flexibility and health awareness for PreK-12 students. Using highly experiential activities, participants will also develop ways to unite their classroom community through the Five Yoga Calm Principles of Stillness, Listening, Strength, Grounding and Community. Class includes detailed instruction in alignment, sequencing adaptations for diverse abilities, including special needs students. Participants will create Integrative Lesson Plans within small groupings by grade level and discipline that can be used right away in their work with students. No yoga experience necessary.

  • Develop teacher best practices involving classroom behaviors, cognitive strategies, adaptations for specific populations, and applications for attention deficit hyperactivity, anxiety, depression and autism spectrum disorders.
  • Recognize, support and deepen physical and emotional health and well-being.
  • Analyze how the techniques and activities of Yoga Calm impact teaching/therapy and classroom/therapeutic practices as well as student achievement and health awareness.
  • Discuss the use of yoga-based movement as an intervention for populations with sensory integration challenges.

This workshop is designed for PreK-12 educators, college professors, parents, counselors, treatment center staff, occupational therapists, yoga teachers, and any other adults that work with children.
