Chair Yoga and Mindful Practices for Children

Online Jan 14 to Feb 25, 2021

Price: more than $250


Through this six-week training, you will gain the confidence to identify challenging times during your in-person or virtual school day and to learn how to teach chair yoga breathing, postures, brain breaks, and relaxation exercises to build connection, engage your students, and shift them into a more learning-ready state of mind. Together, we will explore how to safely and effectively adapt yoga poses to the chair and how to use the chair as a prop to stretch and strengthen the body. The tools shared in this course support distance learning at home, in-person modified classroom environments, and in therapeutic settings.
