Empathy

Establishing a peaceful and cooperative learning environment for young learners is possible through the strategic teaching of life-skills. One such life-skill is empathy. When any human is able to feel compassion for others, or to see another’s point of view, this leads to a cooperative, peaceful environment. Empathy is the keep to this peace.

Yoga in the Classroom

Establishing a classroom yoga practice can help to create an atmosphere of family, compassion and empathy. You don’t have to be a yoga expert, though a little experience is helpful. I started practicing yoga with my transitional kindergarten students after taking a class and getting certified by YOGAed, an organization that teaches teachers how to incorporate yoga into classroom routine.
