In this short webinar, we will discover how teaching mindfulness and meditation in the classroom can support students’ classroom engagement, increase focus and reduce the negative aspects of stress and anxiety.
You will walk away with a toolbox of ideas and hands on methods to support your students in calming/lowering stress and anxiety levels, engaging positively with others and to focus on the task at hand.
