OverviewMindfulness has become a big buzzword in schools lately. Having students take time to do a self check and think about how they are thinking and feeling, what is stressing them, what might be tight or tense. However, if you don’t know anything about mindfulness it’s a bit intimidating to try it out with your class. I’ve got a class that gets very riled up and so I’ve started using yoga as a means of calming down after a particularly chaotic transition or lesson. Yoga Studio App gives me ideas for poses I can do and sequences I can try. It also gives me a way to destress on my own after a particularly stressful day in the classroom.
