Mindfulness Training Programs

Teaching Mindfully

(8-weeks)

As a teacher, you are tasked with taking on multiple roles – nurturer, therapist, social worker, conflict negotiator and behaviorist, in addition to your primary role in educating children. This course is designed to help you develop a practice of self-care and wellness to navigate the

stress you face both in and out of the classroom. Whether or not you choose to incorporate mindfulness strategies in your class, both you and your students will benefit from your personal practice. There is a specific focus on non-judgmental awareness, fostering compassion for yourself and others, mindful communication strategies and preventing burn-out. The final 2 classes in this course include in-classroom mindfulness instruction to your students.

 

Mindful Teachers - Inspired Classrooms

(6-months)

This program is customized to provide skills that reduce teacher stress and prevent burnout, strengthen communication, utilize adaptable mindfulness and creative arts approaches to improve academic learning, and additionally create a more connected school community. This results in a supported, sustainable, and integrated model of learning for the current generation of youth that incorporates creative arts and mindful pedagogy while promoting teacher well-being and strong student-teacher-family connections. 

 

It is shaped with the teacher in mind – not to add one more thing to their day, but, to adapt into their current lessons and curriculum.
