    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, when it's taught in an engaging, sensitive way, students tend to have a positive experience with mindfulness.

  4. Mindfulness is a state of being in which a person can view oneself, holistically, at the present moment. This state is very important for my students, at the elementary level, to learn how to self-regulate. For if one isn't aware of oneself, how can one affect change or control over oneself? It is a change agent.

  5. Mindfulness for the teacher relates to not responding from the threatened core but allow yourself to be engaged in the inner core where more choices and feelings are available. With students mindfulness lets them be less impulsive and to learn more about self control.

  6. I am very pleased that there are schools doing this. I wanted to incorporate yoga into my classroom a few years ago after a workshop I had at Penland. Breathing exercises and mindfulness are perfect!

  7. I haven't tried this in my classroom. I have heard great things about practicing yoga in the classroom. I even met teachers that practice "desk" yoga where students don't even leave their desk. I'm not sure if that would work.. ???
