This third in a series of three Yoga Calm curriculum courses introduces participants to 20 new social/emotional skill development games and wellness activities from the program curriculum – and the strategies that inform them – giving teachers and counselors new tools for directly addressing the need for emotional guidance and support in schools and other settings. Case histories from school counseling, private practice and clinical experience will be used to highlight successful techniques and strategies for working with a broad range of student needs. The use of storytelling, symbolic language and the complementary aspects of Eastern and Western psychology will also be covered.

Developed from over 35 years of counseling and teaching in both schools and clinical settings and informed from research, Yoga Calm ( is effective and appropriate for all ages and abilities. The practices taught in this workshop are designed to complement those taught in An Integrated Approach to Wellness 1 and 2.
