Emma Reynolds - Playing with Emotions, Mindfully
Join Mindfulness teacher and theatre practitioner Emma Reynolds for a dynamic session on Emotions. We will look at how you can get your kids ready for learning, by helping them recognize when they are in the red zone; feeling stressed or frustrated and help them return to the green zone; connected, calm and focused. We’ll explore how we can change our mood through simple theatre exercises, as well as try out some short mindful practices to help calm students when they’re over-excited, or wake them up when they’ve low energy. Fun, dynamic and practical, this session is suitable for teachers working online or in a classroom.
