Yoga for the Classroom @VMS (SD33 Teachers/TTOCs/Admin ONLY)

The need for emotional regulation has never been greater.  Children and adults have the power to develop tools to help work through difficult emotions, to regulate their own nervous systems and most importantly to be able to slow down and hone the ability to listen to their own inner wisdom. 

An estimated 84,000 children and youth in BC have a diagnosed mental health disorder, yet less then 1/3 of those children seek or are receiving mental health services (cmha.bc.ca)

Depression, anxiety and mood disorders are among the leading causes of illness and disease among adolescents (who.int)
                                                                                                                               

During this two hour session we will go through a very simple chair yoga class and meditation to experience the benefits first hand of yoga.  We will go through the WHY we would want to incorporate yoga and meditate techniques into school, the HOW and WHAT tools and techniques to use specifically and the WHEN to ensure kids leave wanting more, and are able to integrate these tools into their everyday life.
