The incorporation of Yoga Builds into the classroom emphasizes students’ self-awareness, focus and concentration, body awareness and relaxation – all of which will support a more peaceful and calm environment particularly during transition times. These workshops provide teachers and therapists with a tool-box for working with difficult behaviors and learning challenges in their classrooms and have the added benefit of empowering adults to truly create change, both for themselves and the youth in their care. This workshop is best taught in a half-day or full-day format. Participants should dress to move comfortably.
1 ½ Hour Introductory Workshop: $350
½ Day, 3 hrs: $550
Full Day, 5 hrs: $950
