Teachers need to prioritize self-awareness, if they expect self-regulation.
- Carla Tantillo, Founder of Mindful Practices
Mindful Practices is pleased to announce that our Large Yoga Pose Cards have been featured in a recent Fitness and Faith blog post entitled The Yoga Band Wagon. In the post, the author and educator, Kima Spaulding, poses a question worth repeating again and again:
"With what our youth faces today as challenges be it stress, inactivity, too much electronics, unhealthy food options, and crazy schedules Yoga can provide them with positive benefits. Why not join in? ... I have been utilizing the cards in my classes for teaching materials. The options are endless with these. The unique part of the card that I have not seen on other cards is at the top left hand corner. It categorizes the mood of the yoga pose. This gets back to what concepts I expose my students to. I can have the students create an individual yoga routine based on mood with these cards. This resource from Mindful Practices attracted a lot of attention at my presentation for DuPage County this past March."
Thanks to Kima for sharing her positive experiences with yoga and Mindful Practices' programs! Be sure to read the entire blog post on Kima's blog Fitness and Faith.
