Welcome to the 2015 Natick Innovation & Learning Summit and the Natick Wellness Summit!  

DATE: Monday, November 30th, 2015 from 8 AM - 3 PM at Natick High School.
Natick High School is located at 15 West St. Natick, MA 01760

This year we will host over 850 educators and hold over 130 workshop sessions that are facilitated by expert practitioners on the tools, resources and instructional practices that Natick educators have requested.  All sessions are tagged by level and target audience to help you choose the best sessions for your interest and skill level.

This year is extra special because we are joining with the Natick Wellness Summit which has been designed to nurture the interdisciplinary roles of educators in the adoption of physical activity as a learning tool. Learn from leading neuroscientists, educators and psychologists the best practices and evidence based research to creatively incorporate physical activity into school policy, and teaching practices to enhance student’s ability to learn. 

We hope you enjoy this years summit and it allows you to deepen your professional practice.

Wellness Summit: Your Yoga and Mindfulness Tool Kit: How Yoga and Mindfulness Benefit the School Community FULL
Limited Capacity full

THERE ARE TWO REPEAT SESSIONS OFFERED FOR THIS SESSION: 9:45am and then again at 1:15pm.  Eve Costarelli will introduce yoga and mindfulness techniques, specifically designed for the time and space-crunched classroom. Through a clear, straightforward framework, you will learn how to empower your students and yourselves with increased self-awareness, the foundation for the development of self-management, cognitive and emotional empathy and relationship skills. The basic strategies are easy for teachers, students, parents, and therapists to use, and help to create a more harmonious, learning-friendly, school day. 

 Absolutely no yoga experience is required. In fact, participants are encouraged to wear regular, comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes to the workshop, as we'll be simulating a classroom experience.  This fun and informative workshop will relax and inspire you.
