An important theme here at MindfulTeachers.org is realistic self-care for educators and other helping professionals. One key aspect of self-care is to take a break in the midst of a busy workweek to breathe, stretch, and get some mindful movement.

- have limited mobility;
- would like to try some gentle stretches at your desk; or
- would benefit from using a chair as an extra-tall yoga block (which is something I frequently do myself).
