Bringing Yoga to the Classroom

Today’s children are learning in classrooms far different than their parents. The emphasis on accelerated learning and skills mastery at a young age, the constant presence of technology in their lives and the intrusions of the media in many homes create a less than peaceful environment for many children. The addition of yoga in the classroom gets children moving in a purposeful way, breathing with control and mastering their thoughts and feelings to build resiliency and develop respect for themselves and others.

To help teachers and teacher assistants working with students in Pre-K, K and 1 through 3 introduce yoga into their class environment, Yoga Central is pleased to offer “Yoga in the Classroom—Not Your Mother’s Yoga!” This 2-hour workshop on January 14 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., will be taught by Donna McMullin, an instructor who has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years, and 29 years experience in public education teaching in grades K-8. Donna has also done professional development for fellow educators and has great respect for her professional colleagues.

A wonderful side benefit of bringing yoga to your classroom will be the creation of a more pleasant environment for the children—and the adults who work with them.

Cost: $30. Location: Yoga Central, 953 Rt. 202 N, Branchburg. Please pre-register at 908-707-0759.
