MacGregor Kids are De-Stressing
This week grade 7 students at??MacGregor will try??De-Stressing Yoga.
Ask them to share what they learned about stress resilience and techniques to further develop self-awareness, self-care and self-regulation.
Yoga is an effective tool for managing stress and self-regulation. In fact, in 2014, self regulation researcher and author Dr Stuart Shanker and I created a webinar (http://www.self-regulation.ca/webinars.html Webinar #6). To further explain my Yoga-Tastic model, read my 2015 article Yoga for Learning, ?Calm, Alert and Ready to Learn.
