- MOSST Part 1
October 10, 2020
8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Part I covers foundational basics, while Part II moves into integration these principles into the curriculum.
For the first time ever, we are offering our MOSST (Mindful and OHMazing® Strategies for Students and Teachers) Workshop beyond school walls. Join us for live streaming or recorded formats and learn tools for integrating trauma-informed, research-based mindfulness and movement into your personal and professional lives. These trainings are perfect to take with a colleague or team.
The purpose of MOSST is to support students and teachers, as well as parents and caregivers:
- Identify and understand brain and body connections;
- Monitor their minds and bodies to identify stressors, emotions, and energy levels with curiosity and compassion;
- Curate neural pathways with awareness and self-compassion;
- Learn and practice research-based self-regulation tools to shift their mental and physical states to optimize learning and well-being through mindfulness and other forms of movement.
Each day, students and teachers are faced with both visible and invisible stressors such as test anxiety, bullying, food insecurity, generational and situational trauma—including from experiencing bias and racism—as well as the biological transformations that naturally occur from birth to adulthood. These stressors can lead to depression, anxiety, anger management issues, difficulties with focus and attention, poor academic performance, and physical health problems. Research has shown that mindfulness and breath and body awareness can help people mitigate the effects of internal and external stressors so that they can participate fully in school and in life.
Rebecca Connors, Head of Sugar Creek Montessori School in Katy (pictured above), shares “fantastic program for anyone interested in bringing yoga, mindfulness, kindness and fun to children of all ages! It’s been about 8 years since I attended my first YYY training and I’m still using the tips and tools I learned. I use Flower Power breath pretty much every single day. Now my staff are using too, and that is for themselves as well as the children! Just yesterday I was experiencing some stress and when one of my faculty noticed she said, smell your flowers Ms. Rebecca it’s going to be ok! I’m so grateful that I invested in myself by taking 5 modules for teaching kids yoga! Namaste!”
