Physical Connections to Learning
Physical Connections to Learning (Wellness 2)
Children today are less active today than ever, yet record numbers are also being diagnosed with attention difficulties and hyperactivity. What today’s youth need is mindful movement — physical activity that regulates the nervous system, lights up the attention centers of the brain and includes processes that fully engage the mind, heart and imagination.
Learn how to engage learners while expanding and deepening your knowledge of the Yoga Calm curriculum with 30 additional yoga, mindfulness and social/emotional learning activities and games to mitigate stress, develop attention, physical fitness and health awareness for PreK-12 students.
In addition, using highly experiential activities, participants will also learn new techniques for developing classroom community and behavior management skills.
Course includes detailed instruction in safe physical movement, trauma-informed practices and adaptations for diverse abilities, including special needs students. Participants will also create Integrative Lesson Plans by grade level that can be used right away in their work with students.
This course is designed for educators, college professors, parents, counselors, treatment center staff, occupational therapists, yoga teachers, parents and other adults that work with children.
No prerequisites to this course or prior yoga experience is necessary.
Our online courses allows you to begin your coursework as soon as you register, with online videos, readings and resources. It’s a great way to learn at a convenient time and place and to repeatedly watch and practice activities.
