An Antidote to Teacher Burnout: How Yoga and Mindfulness Can Support Resilience In and Out of the Classroom

An Antidote to Teacher Burnout: How Yoga and Mindfulness Can Support Resilience In and Out of the Classroom

Whether you have two minutes or 20 minutes to spare, this course will show you how to regroup and refocus with simple yoga and mindfulness approaches.

What can yoga and mindfulness practices do for school teachers? 

  • Improve self-awareness of thoughts, emotions, and causes for behaviors - Improve conflict resolution ability
  • Improve empathy and compassion, for self and others
  • Reduce stress, burnout, depression and anxiety
  • Reduce reactivity and negativity

Teaching can be a very stressful occupation. Teachers work long hours, on their feet, and face increasing demands from mandated testing and other stressors. School teachers need to nurture themselves. Embracing self-care and personal mindfulness, teachers will not only improve their own well-being, but also support their classrooms and the larger community. 

Teachers benefit from yoga through improvements in their strength, flexibility, balance, equanimity, calmness, and relaxation in both their jobs and lives. Techniques like conscious breathing provide a ready solution for many challenges during the school day. Breathing breaks also improve posture, attention, and focus, and encourages mindful action. Balance poses can sharpen concentration and teachers learn to develop their stamina in maintaining focus. Teachers can build awareness of their energy and how it’s affected by times of day, meals, interactions, interruptions, and both every day and unusual stressors. With internal awareness, teachers develop the ability to acknowledge and influence the energy of others.

Yoga helps teachers explore their ability to control their responses to stressful situations. They often cannot control the situation itself or individual players in it, but they can remain calm, slow down their responses, make better choices, feel empowered, and take clear action.

Instructor Samantha Williams is a registered yoga teacher who has completed over 700 hours of training, and taken her yoga practice on the road from Maine to Costa Rica.  An ACE certified personal trainer since 2010, she helps clients find creative ways to fit their work outs in and achieve their goals. Samantha currently offers yoga and exercise in one-on-one sessions, group classes, and workshops.  As owner of Bold Coast Yoga School, Samantha now instructs Yoga teachers.
