Applying the Principles of Yoga to Social Emotional Learning

Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 12:00 PM








At Brave Yoga For All, we know that you want to be well-equipped to apply Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in your classroom or adult care program. In order to do that, you need to be ready to connect with many personalities across a spectrum of abilities and learning styles. The problem is there’s not one magical approach that works for everyone. This can make you feel like you’re letting your students or residents down.

We believe that educators and program coordinators should be ready to address the needs of ALL students and residents. I understand how difficult this can be in the classroom or adult learning center which is why I created Brave Yoga for All. This program offers educators a professional development course that unlocks the principles of Yoga as a tool for social emotional learning (PDPs awarded in MA).

And, for adult day centers offering care to those with intellectual disabilities, Brave Yoga for All offers adaptive yoga sessions both virtually and in person.

No, it’s not funky poses and eastern mantras – it’s a way to form real connections with balance, coping skills, self-regulation, and self-esteem – right in the classroom or residential setting.

I want to tell you more about it, so I am inviting you to a FREE live webcast where I will demonstrate the adapted yoga approach and show you how it can work for everyone.

Who should attend this webcast

This webcast is intended for individuals working in public schools, adult day centers, occupational therapists who work with those with intellectual disabilities, and anyone interested in applying the principles of yoga to achieve social emotional learning objectives.

About Lisa Irvine

Lisa Irvine, MS, OTR/L, RYT 200 is an AOTA-certified Occupational Therapist, certified Yoga Instructor, and the founder of Brave Yoga For All, an adapted approach to yoga for everyone. She has conducted countless sessions with individuals with special needs, group sessions, and professional development sessions.

I wanted to let you [Lisa] know how much I enjoyed the training and how much the experience helped me.  After a difficult morning, fighting traffic and struggling to find a coffee shop, I arrived right at 8am and I was frazzled.  I passed you in the hallway and the first words out of your mouth were something to the effect of “no rush, we are all good, just relax.”  Then the smell of peace wafted through the hallway, the room had candles and soothing music.  AMAZING.  The tone carried on throughout the day.  I can’t tell you how much your energy and caring nature meant to me.  It was exactly what I needed and you helped me more than you could ever imagine.  I applaud you for the work you have done and continue to do.  Your genuine respect and care for children and adults with disabilities is so apparent.  You are a gifted individual.

We recently partnered with Brave Yoga to offer a virtual yoga class to Special Olympics Massachusetts athletes. Lisa was so welcoming and did such a fantastic job instructing the class. Lisa is so personable, engaging and enthusiastic which is a huge part of why her class is so great! My favorite part about the class is that it is more than just exercise! During the class, Lisa implemented and taught the participants proper breathing techniques, calming strategies and tools for relaxation.  The class does such a great job integrating mindfulness with movement.

We have been working with Lisa for about two years and we couldn’t be happier.  She has the skill to transition seamlessly between working with adults and children, as well as those with significant behavioral challenges.  Lisa’s positive attitude and unique approach to mindfulness and movement make her an incredible instructor.  She is creative, fun, reliable and organized.  Venture Community Services highly recommends Brave Yoga for All!

In our Day Habilitation program, our days can be pretty hectic.  Taking an hour out of our busy schedules to relax with Lisa’s guidance is a great opportunity for us to reset and refocus.  Lisa makes yoga accessible for people with all ability levels.  She creates a routine that our participants can easily follow along.  Yoga has helped our individuals come out of their shells, encouraging them to express themselves through movement and providing effective coping tools.  Brave Yoga for All has been a positive addition to our services and has benefited our clients greatly.
