Integrated Approach to Wellness Intensive
July 26 – 28, 2016: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day
This three-day intensive workshop covers the entire Yoga Calm® wellness system, highlighting its basic principles and classroom tools, including breathing exercises, simple yoga poses, social/emotional skill-development activities, relaxation/storytelling processes, and emotional-guidance techniques. Participants will learn how to design interventions that help students with self-regulation, focus, learning readiness, social/emotional learning strategies, trauma, and de-escalation movement. This workshop will provide further emphasis on neurological readiness for learning and the connection between social/emotional learning and cross-curricular academic achievement. Participants also will investigate best practices in the newest brain research.
Through presentation, hands-on learning, reflection and discussion, you will learn how Yoga Calm uniquely integrates physical, mental, and emotional skill building. These skills support learning and health while instilling lifelong habits in wellness. Case histories from social work counseling will be used to highlight and develop strategies useful for working with a broad range of student needs.
This workshop is for school teachers, social workers, counselors, treatment center staff, yoga teachers, OTs, parents, and other adults who work with children.
