As we head back to school, we are excited and energized for another great year of collaboration and learning. Devon and I are both very passionate educators that believe strongly in doing our best for our students. Sometimes the whirlwind of teaching, presenting, learning and “life” can leave us feeling pretty depleted. In the past, we often didn’t know how to recharge when we were feeling overwhelmed. In recent years, we’ve come to recognize the importance of self-care and one way we’ve been looking after ourselves is by practising yoga. Devon and I work together in many ways, so this year we decided to start off our collaboration by sharing a set of yoga poses for back to school. Devon is a certified hatha yoga teacher, so she carefully selected this set of poses to help teachers foster some key characteristics that educators will need to be successful this school year. If you decide to try the poses, we’d love to read your comments and see photos of your yoga poses on social media this fall!
If you are unfamiliar with any of these poses, some of our favourite yoga resources for pose tutorials and online classes are:
