When I asked her what was the best part she said, "meeting the girls who were all really nice, the fun activities we got to do and Regina was a really good teacher"
She's already looking forward to doing another one. So we both highly recommend the Yoga & Mindfulness Workshops with Yogazeit. Thanks Regina and it looks like we'll see you again for the next one 🙏🧘♀️

Tools for Teachers Workshop – Family Pathways
"I have committed to engaging my students in mindfulness and yoga at the start of every lesson, since participating at your Workshop at Murdoch Uni.Not only does it provide a space for focus and awareness for my students, but it provides me with the space to explore who I am as a teacher.I have been teaching for about 24 years, so I feel like I know when I have found a good thing! Offering a calm and meditative space for young people to be through the very difficult time of Covid-19 has felt very important. In the last few stressful days of last term, six year 7 students attended my class, four of whom said they hadn’t slept the night before. I led them through a visualisation based on yours where they go through a door. I think you call in “A special Place”. Two of them stayed asleep and one said, “Miss, can we do that every lesson?”. They then drew their happy place."

I loved that yoga/mindfulness PD. I feel strongly that the best gift we can give to children is an awareness of their thoughts and feelings and strategies to support them. I will be using what I picked up in the classroom and I am so happy to work at a school that values this.
