November 9 Vancouver, BC. Social Emotional Learning by Grow Your Roots
Our mission is to educate our society through our science based mind-body approach to become more resilient, kind, strong, and compassionate individuals while dramatically reducing levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. Our goal is to help others learn to use the body to heal, in many instances as a replacement for drugs. Grow Your Roots educates individuals through education about the body-mind connection and how imperative this connection strength is for focus, compassion, and self-awareness. Through our Professional Development Seminars for Teachers, we will create confident, strong and healthy individuals for our next generation of children and youth, all while benefitting the Teacher. Grow Your Roots is a response to the current wellbeing epidemic in children and youth. Our young generation is struggling to develop human functions such as relationships, self-awareness, and basic motor skills - as a result, are suffering from early onset mental and physical health issues including ADHD, depression, anxiety, obesity and restlessness. Through our science-based program, we will introduce a method to integrate mindful awareness in the classroom easily and seamlessly. MIMO" MMT's Seminar for Teachers provide an embodied science-based learning approach to mindful movement strategies that may be implemented into the classroom to increase awareness, engagement, compassion, and motor skills for improved efficiency and overall consciousness. The Seminar provides the Teacher with the skill set and opportunity to increase the space between our stimulus and reactionary neurons so we have the ability to respond rather than react to feelings that come up in the body. This is effective for both the Teacher and Student and is a significant component to healthy brain development. The Seminar discusses the challenges of slowing down in the classroom; defines past, present, and future thinking; and provides integrative strategies that are used to "drop" into the body's internal awareness and provide a foundation to assess and monitor one's self. The Seminar uses the body to train our cognitive and emotional domain in our brain and control our thinking and feeling. MIMO" for Teachers is always hosted in a bright, beautiful space with food + drink included and fun giveaways at the end of each session. Supplementary videos are provided after the seminar, along with email access to the Founders - you are never alone. For more information or to RSVP, please email us at hello@growyourroots.ca

April 29 Vancouver, BC. Social Emotional Learning by Grow Your Roots
Our mission is to educate our society through our science based mind-body approach to become more resilient, kind, strong, and compassionate individuals while dramatically reducing levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. Our goal is to help others learn to use the body to heal, in many instances as a replacement for drugs. Grow Your Roots educates individuals through education about the body-mind connection and how imperative this connection strength is for focus, compassion, and self-awareness. Through our Professional Development Seminars for Teachers, we will create confident, strong and healthy individuals for our next generation of children and youth, all while benefitting the Teacher. Grow Your Roots is a response to the current wellbeing epidemic in children and youth. Our young generation is struggling to develop human functions such as relationships, self-awareness, and basic motor skills - as a result, are suffering from early onset mental and physical health issues including ADHD, depression, anxiety, obesity and restlessness. Through our science-based program, we will introduce a method to integrate mindful awareness in the classroom easily and seamlessly. MIMO" MMT's Seminar for Teachers provide an embodied science-based learning approach to mindful movement strategies that may be implemented into the classroom to increase awareness, engagement, compassion, and motor skills for improved efficiency and overall consciousness. The Seminar provides the Teacher with the skill set and opportunity to increase the space between our stimulus and reactionary neurons so we have the ability to respond rather than react to feelings that come up in the body. This is effective for both the Teacher and Student and is a significant component to healthy brain development. The Seminar discusses the challenges of slowing down in the classroom; defines past, present, and future thinking; and provides integrative strategies that are used to "drop" into the body's internal awareness and provide a foundation to assess and monitor one's self. The Seminar uses the body to train our cognitive and emotional domain in our brain and control our thinking and feeling. MIMO" for Teachers is always hosted in a bright, beautiful space with food + drink included and fun giveaways at the end of each session. Supplementary videos are provided after the seminar along with email access to the Founders - you are never alone. For more information, or to RSVP please email us at hello@growyourroots.ca.
