Imagining Rainbows and Rocketship: Guided Imagery for Relaxation and Learning

Guided imagery is a valuable tool to help children relax their bodies and focus their minds. By picturing a relaxing place and imagining all the sights, smells, sounds, feelings, and even tastes of this place, stress is reduced and the body and mind are calmed. Guided visualizations can be used anywhere and anytime a child needs some “down time”, including at home at bedtime, in the classroom before a test, or during savasana in a yoga class.

Carolyn Clarke, owner of Bambino Yoga, has been teaching yoga to children since 2002, and has used guided imagery with children of all ages, from toddlers to teens.  Her guided imagery book, Imaginations: Fun Relaxation Stories and Meditations for Kids, is a favorite of parents and teachers around the world.

Join Carolyn for a webinar on child-friendly guided visualization techniques filled with rainbows and rocket ships. Participants will learn about the benefits of guided imagery, as well as practical ways to create a relaxing, child-friendly environment for relaxation. Participants will also experience a guided visualization leaving them calm, relaxed, and ready to share guided imagery with children.

Who should attend this webinar:

  • Yoga teachers striving to create a more relaxing and imaginative yoga class experience
  • Parents wanting to reduce their child’s anxiety and stress in daily life and at bedtime
  • Educators looking for ways to create a calm classroom to facilitate learning

EMBRACE-Inclusive Yoga

EMBRACE: Inclusive Yoga and Creative Arts

A special focus on working successfully with children on the autism spectrum.

Joseph Campbell said, “I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life, so much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.”

Being “alive” is the sense of being fully engaged in life and appreciating ourselves and each other as valuable members of the community. In our workshop on INCLUSION, we will explore the key elements of creating inclusive classrooms, families and recreational opportunities. Using the acronym of EMBRACE, participants will explore philosophy and strategies for utilizing Yoga and Creative Expression as a method to create  an inclusive environment where the child with differing abilities, their typical peers and adults can be joyfully involved. When everyone feels embraced in a process which strives to include, then the child knows success as he/she experiences enhanced social interaction, learning, focus, confidence, expression and play.
Participants will:
  • Discover key elements of creating Inclusion
  • Learn support strategies
  • Hear real life examples covering success and challenges of Inclusion
  • Discover how Yoga, Breathing, Mindfulness and Creative Expression can facilitate inclusivity
  • Acquire tools for use as we discover the gifts and benefits of working, living and playing well together
