best-practices-yog-in-schoolSchool Based Yoga: Building Strong Relationships to Support Sustainable ProgramsComing in May, 8-9:00 pm Eastern/5-6:00 pm PacificPresenters: Traci Childress & Jennifer Cohen Harper

Relationships are one of the most significant factors in determining a program’s success and must be considered carefully. Educator Parker Palmer writes, “to teach is to create a space,” and that when we teach, we always teach what we know. As teachers share yoga (or any other subject) with children, we create space for others to learn. We naturally offer the yoga practices and create yoga programs through our own lens—from the perspective of our history, privilege, wounds, bias, assumptions, and wisdom. We offer yoga mixed with all the other things we know and have experienced in our lives.

Working with students in schools means that yoga instructors will invariably come into contact with children (and adults) from a tremendously wide variety of circumstances. This webinar will draw from the Relationship Building chapter of the book to explore how we can commit to becoming more sensitive to children by developing ways to become and remain connected to each child as an individual, in all circumstances, regardless of their behavior, label, or diagnosis. We’ll also discuss the importance of, and strategies for, building strong relationships with adults in the school community.

A commitment to conscious relationship, supported by reflection and self-inquiry, allows yoga service providers to engage skillfully, honestly, and authentically with students and entire school communities, regardless of whether teachers and students come from similar life circumstances. Join us for this discussion as we support each other in bringing out best selves to our classrooms.
