Educator Well-Being Part II

Engagement Details


Explore breathing strategies to increase your regulation and resiliency. We are connecting our inner and outer worlds to feel better. We can pass on these strategies to our students and families. By first "trying-on" these strategies, we can embody the body benefits. When we can make these strategies part of our self-care plan, then we can authentically model self-care to our students.

Learning Objectives

  • Try-on a variety of breathing strategies.
  • Explore breathing strategies that you can teach to your students.
  • Notice within yourself which strategies positively impact your body and brain.
