Nurturing Youth with Yoga
Licensed Trainer Patricia Wright will offer professional development workshops for educators on Saturday, November 21 from noon to 6 p.m. This Yoga4Classrooms workshop teaches participants to integrate simple yoga and mindfulness activities in educational settings to support self-regulation and improve social and emotional learning skills for students. Additional trainings will be held in January and February.
Research demonstrates yoga and mindfulness training improves academic performance, focus and attention, confidence, stress management and social interaction for students. The workshop helps participants facilitate learning readiness, which can improve student achievement; cultivate well-being, resilience and a positive classroom climate and become a more effective educator as you practice these tools with your students. As an educator, I have observed many changes taking place in the classroom over the years”, states Wright who holds a Master’s degree in Teaching and a degree psychology. Yoga in classrooms addresses social, emotional and physical challenges our children face today and helps them find success in and out of school.”
