The Sensory-Enhanced Yoga Institute is excited to announce its new 2-day workshop:

Sensory-Enhanced, Mindfulness-based Yoga for Learning Environments (S.M.Y.L.E.)

This workshop is especially designed for elementary and middle-school teachers, special needs teachers, O.T.s, other allied and licensed mental health professionals, yoga therapists and yoga instructors who would like to learn how to incorporate Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® into the classroom and general school setting to help students manage symptoms of stress and/or unresolved trauma so they can maintain a calm, focused state of alertness conducive to learning. The course is being co-created by Megan Hennessey, M.Ed., RYT, Dr. Erin O’Neill, OTD, OTR/L RYT-200, and Lynn Stoller, M.S. OTR/L, C-IAYT, RYT 500/E-RYT 200, YACEP and will present the science/evidence base, theoretical model, guidelines for practice as well as the specific yoga forms, movements, breathing, and meditation techniques to implement the program. Participants will be taught both mat and chair versions of the program, as well as strategies for teaching the program to groups of students with mixed mobility levels. The workshop is highly experiential and includes a detailed manual. Yoga experience is not required.

You will find the bios for Megan Hennessey, Erin O’Neill and Lynn Stoller on our team page.
