This course is designed to help educators create a classroom atmosphere that fosters peace, inner growth and physical movement through the practice of yoga and meditation. Educators will understand how to use meditation and yoga in the classroom through a series of games, stories and breathing exercises. The teachers will explore the manual “Yoga for Teachers: How to use yoga and meditation in the classroom” and put to practice lessons and activities from the manual. Some of the manual will give detailed lesson plans and other short ideas on how to incorporate yoga and meditation into the regular classroom day.
