New Canaan Library Hosts Workshop for Elementary and Pre K Teachers Mindful Yoga Breaks in the Classroom
November 12, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$15.
Yoga promotes a sense of calm and increased focus, among its many benefits. What better place to put this into practice than in the preschool and elementary classroom, where active minds and bodies often need a refreshing break? New Canaan Library is pleased to host the workshop Mindful Yoga Breaks in the Classroom for teachers, librarians, and anyone who works with young children on Saturday, November 12 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Lamb Room.
Presented by Lani Rosen-Gallagher of Full of Joy Yoga, this workshop will teach professionals how to bring focus, self-regulation and fun to their classrooms while fostering social and emotional learning. Lani will introduce and teach useful techniques such as breathing exercises, mindfulness, yoga poses and mindful games and exercises. Participants can then shape these tools into 1, 5, 10 or 15 minute breaks to use during the school day or session. Manuals will be provided that outline what is covered in the workshop. Attendees should dress comfortably and bring a water bottle and mat if possible. A suggested donation of $15 at the door will help the Library cover the cost of the presentation.
For additional information on the workshop please contact the Children’s Room at 203-594-5002 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
