Bringing Mindfulness Into The Classroom
With over 2 decades of experience teaching in schools Agrios has a solid understanding of what it’s like to be in the classroom. What makes Agrios unique is she is also a fitness trainer, multi-sport gold medallist and world master games record holder in weightlifting, cycling and badminton as well as Level 2 International Kundalini Yoga & Meditation Teacher with advanced training in Yoga Nidra (guided meditation). This combination enables her to skillfully work with both your body and mind.
As a K-12 school teacher I quickly realized my role was more than just teaching the curriculum… kids were stressed and anxious as young as 7 or 8 years old, many kids in my classroom were labelled ADD or ADHD, unable to focus, concentrate or even sit still, there was bullying, depression, anger issues, insomnia and the list goes on and on. Many of the teachers and parents too were dealing with this. I wanted to do something. I wanted help. So I developed a TIME OUT Mindfulness Training & kit specifically for teachers, students and parents. The Mindfulness kit includes mindfulness exercises as well as meditation and mindfulness techniques (3-11minutes) for relaxation, stress reduction, self-regulation, memory, concentration, focus and depression. It’s simple and easy to do. All you need is you! Over 1600 teachers, counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, parents, business people, athletes etc. have been trained with the Mindfulness Kit
During this session, I will teach you a variety of mindfulness & meditation techniques for relaxation, mental focus and concentration to integrate in your daily life and in the classroom with your students. You will also get to experience in 30 seconds how you can shift your thought pattern with a very simple breathing technique. I will conclude this session with a meditation I was taught by a Yoga Master in India which is backed by research showing more blood flow to the frontal lobe…the area responsible for focus, concentration and memory.
So come join us, our Mindfulness Movement of over 12 000 adults, teens and kids as we begin Day 1 of the beKIND Mindfulness Challenge. Today you could be the next. www.agriosmindfitness.com
