Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat for Educators and Care Givers

Mindfulness and Yoga Retreat for Educators and Caregivers - With Meghan Dutton

Sat 04/28/18 - 9:00am to 1:00pm

A retreat to find solace and rejuvenation amidst the hustle and bustle of work and family life

This retreat is geared towards educators, administrators, caregivers, and all who are interested in practicing mindfulness to invigorate themselves for their work with young people.  We will start out morning with gentle yoga, then practice mindfulness meditation through sitting, walking, and eating.  Infused throughout will be discussions on the impact of these experiences, as well as a basic introduction to the science of mindfulness, and how we can tap this internal resource throughout our day to support our work with children and teens.

Meghan Dutton lives in Newburyport, MA and currently works as a special educator, certified yoga instructor, and certified Mindful Schools mindfulness educator in schools throughout Massachusetts. She has worked with youth for the past ten years as an educator, yoga teacher, mindfulness facilitator, and staff member of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) teen retreats. Her work has incorporated mindfulness practices in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms, along with leading Professional Development in schools on mindfulness in education. She is passionate about bringing mindfulness tools to the lives of families, schools, educators, and youth.
