Chair Yoga for Classrooms: Get Kids Moving and Ready to Learn with Jennifer Cohen Harper and Mayuri Gonzalez
How can you bring the benefits of yoga to students, when your school simply doesn’t have enough space or time? Chair yoga makes it possible.
Join us for an introduction to this effective and sustainable way to bring daily embodied mindfulness practices to children and adolescents in a classroom setting, without the need for additional space or yoga mats. You’ll learn simple and effective chair-based practices you can immediately bring to students (and use yourself!), incorporating movement, breathing, mindfulness and relaxation.
