Yoga Calm Intensives

The Intensive introduces the complete Yoga Calm system, its principles, research support and over 100 activities and lesson plans from the Wellness 1, Wellness 2 and Wellness 3 courses.

These courses cover the entire Yoga Calm Wellness Curriculum including mindfulness and breathing exercises, simple yoga poses, social/emotional skill development activities, relaxation/storytelling processes and emotional guidance techniques. These activities are effective for a wide range of ages (PreK-12), settings, and populations, including special-needs children.

Overall, you will learn new activities, games, and processes that:

  • Reduce stress, self-nurture, and regulate emotions
  • Improve self control, concentration and imagination
  • Increase fitness, self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Enhance communication, trust, teamwork and leadership skills
  • Help with sensory integration, ADHD, autism, anxiety, and other needs
  • Help you with classroom management
  • Support your health!

The course series also provides a supportive environment in which to observe, practice-teach, develop new skills and nurture yourself. (See photo gallery from past events.)

The course format, and the Yoga Calm approach, features a cycle of physical yoga, cognitive learning and relaxation/integration — for an effective, yet relaxed approach to learning.
