Is Stress Making It Difficult For You To Be The Teacher You Know You Can Be?

Teaching is demanding, and at times overwhelming. In our attempts to keep up, our moods and stress levels create less than optimal learning environments for our students and our own well-being.

If you are ready to transform your relationship with stress, come join with a group of like-minded people for this professional development training. You will learn practical techniques and approaches that will leave your body tension free and your mind clear and calm.

Come prepared to be on the floor where you will learn a variety of relaxation techniques, perspectives, and healthy breathing, along with gentle and restorative movement of the body. Walk away with the skills you need to let the best of you come through, despite the demands.

The instructor, Susan McNamara, M.A., CHHC, has a Masters in Counseling Psychology and is educated and trained at the doctoral level in Clinical Psychology. She is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor and Professional-Level Yoga teacher. Susan is trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and teaches the course Relaxation Techniques at Westfield State University.
