Whangarei, NZ - Mind Body Practitioner, Inner Bliss

Workshop title: "Radical Self-Care for Educators- in and out of the classroom"

We know that children learn better when they feel secure and at peace. As educators, we also function optimally when we are centred and feeling balance in our lives. Come learn and develop strategies to incorporate in and outside of the classroom that will not only have you feeling more content and heart-centred in your life & work, but will give you techniques to use in your curriculum and one:one interactions with children/students. Be ready to open your mind & heart and leave with a concrete set of strategies to facilitate optimal functioning for you and your classroom.
Let's face it- if we can facilitate children to self-regulate and feel secure and at peace, learning will come naturally.
