I completed a 200-hour yoga and wellness training program called Breathe For Change (B4C). The reason I attended this training was for a couple of reasons. In recent years I have seen an increase in anxiety among my students. From someone who struggled with anxiety as a high schooler (and still do at times as an adult), I felt I had to do more, learn more. So after some research, I landed on the website for Breathe For Change.
B4C works with educators and schools to help transform the way we teach and in my opinion, will change the way our education system functions as we know it today. Anxiety is impacting my student's ability to move through the college process with ease but also the way they learn. My students are struggling to focus and concentrate on one thing at a time. A majority of my clients claim to have "test anxiety". While I understand that to be a real issue, I have also learned there are ways to manage such challenges. One of those is our breath.
Professional Development for Educators
In addition to sharing some basic techniques with my clients, I also offer professional development training for educators, social workers, school administrators, school counselors, school nurses, pre-service teachers, health practitioners, college students (Really, I can tailor this training for just about anyone!) which includes social-emotional learning components.
Most recently, I partnered with Heidi Phillips, with Move Your Brain, offering a workshop for educators on the campus of Butler University. The workshop was called Empowering Educators through Movement and Breath. We'll be offering my sessions on this topic in the upcoming months. Contact me to learn more.
