Join Youth Yoga Project and the Children’s Museum in a two-hour workshop to learn how to support the emotional health of students ages 3 and up. The workshop will help educators build a greater understanding of the important role of emotions and imagination in the classroom.

The workshop is open to all educators who would like to learn strategies to incorporate these concepts into their work with students. Learn how mindfulness can be used as a practical tool for PreK-12 students to build emotional awareness in children and teens. By becoming more familiar with their emotions and learning an emotional vocabulary, students are able to process and manage their emotions instead of allowing their emotions to overwhelm them. Through mindfulness, students learn accessible ways to befriend their emotions. Educators will leave with specific strategies to empower their students to develop emotional awareness and emotion processing tools through mindfulness.

Each participant will receive electronic workshop materials from Youth Yoga Project prior to the workshop.
