Educators Yoga Program

Our leaders in the classroom need better tools for mental health.

Coping and mental health support are lacking for educators which results in teacher burn out. Feeling appreciated and cared for begins in the body at CREATE.

Our Educators Yoga program provides a stress informed routine that focuses on instruction on ways to release pent up nervous system responses to negative emotions. This easy to follow and remember routine leaves teachers with important information about their body as well as more tools to self-regulate stressful experiences in/out of the classroom.

All of the same somatics based education and skills as our kids basketball program, plus…

An enhanced relationship between how the body is reacting to emotional triggers and the ability to recognize / communicate needs for further support.

Personal evaluation of current self-regulation methods being used, levels of stress from classroom experiences, and customized somatics skill suggestions to match. Plus additional resources to facilitate future stress related needs.
