Mindful Yoga Breaks: Eagle Focus Sequence
How to bring focus in 10 minutes or less in your school day
Eagle Focus Sequence
The Eagle Focus sequence is the introduction to the Mindful Yoga Breaks Wise Owl Workshop part 1. Lani and Jen have been teaching these live workshops for the last few years and are really excited to bring this work to you in your own home! Teachers, OT's, PT's, therapists and anyone working with children have been raving about this course which is the reason we wanted to bring it directly to you in this new format.
The Eagle Focus sequence is all about crossing the mid-line. Crossing the mid-line is important because it helps the two hemispheres of the brain work together, which assists in learning, thinking, processing information, taking tests, focusing, and more. To bring quick and easy focus to your day, we put together these four activities which includes: a breathing exercise, a yoga pose, and a game. The entire sequence can be done in just 10 minutes, or you can break it up in a way that works for you and your classroom.
