Mindfulness Skills for the Classroom

Presenter(s):
Debora Colbert
Description:
Recent clinical research on mindfulness practices has shown benefits that may offer an increased ability to transform stress, improve mental clarity, and help with concentration. This session is designed to explore mindfulness meditation and supportive yoga breath for your daily life both in and out of the classroom. The session will begin with an overview of the multiple physical and mental health benefits, offer background on mindfulness and yoga breath practice, discuss strategies for the classroom, and engage participants in "hands-on" practice of these techniques. Audience participation will be invited in a "learning circle" format. A "start where you are" philosophy is embraced and no previous experience is required. Practice sessions will range from 5-15 minutes, followed with time to share experiences and learn from each other.
