This event will be held at the beautiful campus of the University of Saint Joseph. Admissions will provide a brief welcome and overview of campus.

Our presenter will be Emily Rosen, Education Technology Specialist and Certified Mindfulness and Yoga Teacher at CREC. CASEL, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning identifies self-awareness and self-management as two important competencies on the Social and Emotional Learning “wheel”. But how can we teach these important skills? Mindfulness - awareness of the present moment with acceptance -and yoga – mindful movement - can help students become aware of and understand their emotions, thoughts, and bodily sensations. This can have a positive impact on behavior, stress levels, relationships and the ability to focus and concentrate.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Discuss how integrating yoga and mindfulness aligns with CASEL’s Social and Emotional Learning competencies
  • Review case studies and research supporting this work
  • Learn basic yoga and mindfulness techniques appropriate for a school/classroom environment

The Office of Admissions will provide an optional tour at the end of the workshop for all interested participants.

Registration includes continental breakfast, including Fresh pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries and blueberries and an assortment of freshly baked bagels and pastries. Orange juice, water, and coffee will be available, as well.

Parking will be available adjacent to THE CONNOR CHAPEL OF OUR LADY, lots J & K .
