Applying the Code of Ethics in the School Setting

Trauma-Informed Yoga for Children, Adolescents, & Adults

presented by Leah Morgan

Using principles from yoga, we can use breathing, meditation and postures to create a sense of peace and well-being. For those who have experienced trauma, there are some special considerations. Yoga can be an excellent tool for stress relief, problem solving and mindfulness for not only all students, but for school staff and care-givers as well. In this workshop, we will explore yoga for children of all ages, games and youth-appropriate meditations, special considerations for those dealing with stress, anxiety or PTSD. Attendees will also learn how to add in easy elements of these practices for self-care. Please dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat or beach towel for a few floor activities. *Floor sitting not required for those not comfortable with that position. Jeans or dress pants not recommended.

About the presenter: Leah is owner of Core Balance Yoga Center, which has one studio in Lee’s Summit and another in Raintree. She is a 200-hour+ trained yoga teacher with two certifications in Kids Yoga and a certified Laughter Yoga Leader. She is a co-creator of the Kansas City Yoga Festival and the Kansas City Yoga Teacher Training program.
