Mindfulness in Motion
Enhancing the Mind-Body-Emotion Connection!
We all know that the rising expectations for students demands that they spend a lot of time in their seats. According to one leading health expert, “sitting is the new smoking”. If schools want to maximize learning and enhance student attentiveness, then they must pay attention to the simple fact that young bodies and minds work in tandem.
The body can function as an anchor for thought. We learn best when we integrate our whole body, our mind and our emotions in the present moment.
Through a series of collaborative dances, yoga postures and individual and group movement activities, Mindfulness in Motion (MIM) teaches skills that will enhance joy, creativity, focus, leadership and team building. Utilizing the latest findings in brain research and the connections between music, movement and emotions, students explore the many ways their bodies can move and receive a great workout in the process!
Mindfulness in Motion – It’s Dance, Mindfulness, Yoga and Zumba – and Kids Love it!
A Mindfulness in Motion experience helps children embody different emotional moods using a combination of world and popular music from different eras. Also featured are colorful scarves to add depth and vibrancy to the experience.
The class is taught by Beth Bierko, a certified Let Your Yoga Dance instructor and Kripalu Yoga Teacher. She is also the former Director of The Rivertown Center for Yoga & Health in Dobbs Ferry, NY.
It’s highly recommended that this program take place in an open space (like a small gym or multipurpose room) AND that this program be done in small groups of 1-2 classrooms. Most schools have Beth & Scott follow the P.E. schedule.
