Annual Yoga and Mindfulness in New Jersey Schools Symposium

Participants will hear international, national and local educators, authors and practitioners speak on the proven benefits of yoga and mindfulness for children.

 

Rowan University, in Glassboro, will host the annual Yoga and Mindfulness in New Jersey Schools Symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., March 24. Participants will hear international, national and local educators, authors and practitioners speak on the proven benefits of yoga and mindfulness for children.

Students bring baggage with them to school and are placed under tremendous pressure to achieve. Current neuroscience research validates mindfulness, breathing techniques and yoga-based movement as evidence-based methods for students to use as tools for managing physical, mental, emotional and social challenges both in the classroom and in their daily lives. Students who have the skills to self-regulate are more focused and centered, giving them the ability to learn better. Teaching children to cope effectively with stressors is the key to personal and educational success.

Cost: $169. Light lunch, morning refreshments, all materials and a Rowan certificate for 5 PD hours included. Optional yoga and mindfulness classes offered before and after the symposium. Location: Courtyard by Marriott Glassboro at Rowan University, 325 Rowan Blvd. For more information or to register, call Kathy Campsen at 856-256-4715 or email Campsen@Rowan.edu
