Staff Professional Development

Learn to integrate yoga and mindfulness techniques into your work with youth

Integrating yoga and mindfulness techniques into your work as an educator or mental health professional will encourage focus, calm, emotional competence, and resilience among the youth you serve. The Oxygen Project offers professional development programming of various lengths and depth, from which you will learn the powerful tools of yoga and mindfulness to use as self-care practices and to bring into your work with youth. Our workshop facilitators have years of experience in classroom and/or clinical settings, as well as advanced training in yoga and mindfulness, and are passionate about bringing these transformative practices to educational environments.
