Yoga: The New PE

Ready to provide your students with the life-changing skill of experiencing a body, mind, and heart connection? This interactive workshop will introduce physical educators to the primary tools of integrating yoga into PE as part of a warm up/cool down or weekly class practice. Educators will be introduced to postures that support students in stress-reduction, focus, more energy, empowerment, sense of community and fun. Learn how to adopt a new approach to physical education that serves as self-care for educators and students while increasing attentional stability, emotional regulation, and greater efficiency to the body-mind connection.
