This workshop will introduce teachers at all levels to habits and practices of mindfulness, including yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation that they can incorporate into their classrooms. With numerous studies citing the beneficial effects of mindfulness for students, this workshop aims to dispel any doubt about the difficulty of incorporating mindfulness. In this workshop, participants will review current literature on mindfulness in school and practice pranayam (breathing), meditation, and asana (movement) suitable for the classroom. Participants will experience yoga in their bodies and minds in order to better understand the experiences of their students.
