The basic introduction offers practitioners, parents, and teachers who work with young children (ages 2 – 8), a glimpse into valuable and easy-to-integrate movement and mindfulness tools that build self-awareness, impulse control, and social emotional intelligence. You will learn how to use 4 Brain Gym® based self-care techniques as well as slow intentional movement combined with stories, creative play, yoga, and music to improve self-regulation, cognition, and resilience. Additionally, we will show you how to effectively present the benefits of these movement and mindfulness skills to any audience.
In the In-Depth Introduction, participants will learn 6 Brain Gym(R) based mindfulness tools 3 Brain Games that physically introduce children and their teachers to how the brain, the body, and the emotions are all connected, each able to effect or change the other. Participants will also practice what it means to “mirror” a child’s emotions versus “managing” them and the value of recognizing what a powerful barometer a child can be; reflecting with uncanny accuracy the state of mind of their caretaker, parent or teacher. Children often clearly show us the vital necessity of doing our own self-regulation work.
