When leaning a new skill or focusing on an activity, the most effective state is to be alert, yet relaxed. Stress can erode attention and make it difficult to learn, particularly if the stress is prolonged. Unfortunately school environments have become increasingly more stressful for both teachers and students.
In this workshop Lynea Gillen, founder of Yoga Calm, will teach simple, practical strategies to help reduce stress for you and your students and bring students to this relaxed, alert state which is best for learning.
