Teacher: Camille Dodson
Learn how to incorporate yoga and mindfulness in your classroom to help your students manage emotions, stress, and energy. Gain the tools to make yoga kid friendly, fun, and engaging with poses, games, and peaceful activities.
We'll cover how to structure a yoga session, creating space in your classroom, enforcing participation and good behavior, and I'll offer lesson plans to get you started! This workshop is hands on and will give you the confidence and understanding of how and why yoga will benefit your students and your classroom community.
A basic knowledge of yoga is helpful when teaching children, but not required. I'll suggest materials that will help guide you in your teaching.
This workshop is for all teachers, but has an emphasis on elementary and middle school students.
I have a Master's degree in International Child Studies, and 6 years of experience teaching yoga to children, teens, and adults. I have worked with children of all ages and with a wide range of learning, social, and developmental disabilities. It is my dream that the children of today will do better than we did. That they'll learn these tools early and use them as they grow. I see my role as planting seeds of yoga, mindfulness, peace, kindness, and compassion in the hearts and minds of the children I work with. My hope is that these seeds will continue to grow as they do.
