Did you know that practicing mindfulness can boost children’s social-emotional learning skills? Social Emotional Learning ( or SEL) refers to how children navigate emotions, self-awareness, relationships and decision making (The Collaborative for Social Emotional Learning, CASEL).
Recent studies (mindfulschools.org) indicate that mindfulness positively impacts SEL, specifically emotion regulation, empathy, perspective taking, and social skills. More schools are integrating SEL into their standard curriculum alongside math, science, and literacy. ZENworks Yoga is so excited to be at the forefront of this movement toward teaching mindfulness as a life skill to support the whole child. Mindful moments bring balance to the mind and body by helping students to notice, or pay attention, to what is happening in the here and now, without judgment or reaction.
Try this new mindful moment visualization, from our collection of online videos, and see for yourself how a few moments of attention to the present moment can set students up for success in the classroom, or anywhere.
