Meadowbrook Farms School
What is mindfulness and how is it used in the classroom?
As part of one of EGEF's (East Greenwich Education Foundation's) grants this year, Meadowbrook Farms Elementary School staff will learn techniques on how to use "mindfulness breaks" in their day as a way to calm, focus and allow students to self regulate. In addition, a parent workshop will take place on Monday, August 27th at 4pm at Meadowbrook, which is open to all parents in the EG school district.
Recognizing that children need balance and focus in their lives, Lani Rosen-Gallagher (M.Ed., RYT 200, RCYT) first incorporated yoga into her daily schedule while teaching first grade over 20 years ago. Dozens of kids yoga and mindfulness trainings later, she created Full of Joy Yoga and set out on the path of bringing yoga to kids into their school day. She is passionate about improving the lives of children through yoga and mindfulness and loves creating new fun ways to reach that goal.
This is an exciting workshop coming to Meadowbrook to help teachers learn mindfulness practices for the classroom. This is a great opportunity for parents to learn more!
