Course description

This is an informational webinar to learn about the Mindfulness and School-Based Yoga: Tools for the Classroom eLearning Course.

Neuroscientific research documents the interconnectedness of social, emotional, intellectual, and physical well-being. Healthy cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal skills require regulation of the limbic system. Embodied mindfulness practices – with the express goal of building social and emotional competencies – support regulation necessary for children/youth to engage their prefrontal cortex and build skills necessary for learning and healthy interactions. Children and youth need to move and connecting with sensation in the body is a particularly effective way to explore mindfulness. Practices derived from yoga serve to enhance existing efforts around social and emotional growth through the development of biological self-regulation skills. When mindfulness and yoga are taught together, each becomes more powerful teaching tools to cultivate inner resources that maximize resilience and support healthy navigation of internal and external challenges. The Mindfulness and School-Based Yoga: Tools for the Classroom eLearning Course has been developed for professionals seeking to learn and implement evidence-based, trauma-responsive practices that support child/youth well-being, and are practical to implement in the classroom, as well as other applicable settings.
