Yoga and Movement for Kids
presented by Tere Bowen-Irish

Join us for an evening of exploring how to integrate movement, strengthening and improve comprehension by utilizing literacy time as a teacher or therapist in an elementary classroom. Use of yoga and developmental movement patterns can be a great modality to help students access concepts on a bodily kinesthetic level. Take away ideas to use tomorrow. Please bring a yoga mat or beach towel to enjoy this participative workshop.
Tere will bring copies of her book Yoga and Me, Come be a Tree to sell (at $15.00 as opposed to $16.95)
