I am honored to be selected as a presenter at the Opening Minds: Early Education, Childcare, and School Age Conference in Chicago, IL February 7-10, 2018.
This is the biggest early childhood event of the year and I can’t wait to be a part of it.
I will be presenting on How to Easily Incorporate Yoga in Your Preschool Classroom with Poses, Games, and Mindfulness Within Your Existing Curriculum.
Get ready to learn how to effectively use yoga with young children through a variety of methods in an early childhood session. This engaging and interactive session is designed for teachers, child care providers, counselors, and those who want to learn the best strategies to get young children involved with yoga in kid-friendly ways.
You will learn characteristics of this 2-6 year old age group and why now is the best time to introduce them to yoga. This session will include breathing and calming exercises that really work with these young children to help them focus and ease anxiety, stress or nervousness. These exercises can be used at school or home.

Learn cooperative games that allow children to practice yoga poses, build strength, flexibility, and practice self-control while having fun. These games are perfect to play with any size space and require few props or materials.
Handouts will be given including an illustrated yoga pose guide, lesson plans, and resources.
I can’t wait. It promises to be an amazing event. I would love to see you there.
