A {PERSONALIZED} WORKSHOP EXPERIENCE

Workshops can vary based on your interest, needs and priorities as a client. 
Hanna offers individual workshops which can last 1-3 hours or a workshop series where she comes to work with your group over an extended period of time. Brains need time to integrate new learning so a series is usually recommended! 
Because of Hanna's background & expertise as an educator, workshops for teachers are full of stories from her time in the classroom, connections to current education research and easily applicable mindfulness tools for teachers. 
Hanna has also customized her workshops to be a powerful experience for anyone in any field. She carefully researches, plans and personalizes each workshop based on her client.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

A couple of months ago, I went to a Mindfulness PD that was hands down the best training I have ever been to. Ever since that PD, I have been reading up on Mindfulness and incorporating these strategies into my classroom daily. I think that like most teachers, I am always worried about content, classroom management, and instructional activities while neglecting my mental health and well-being. Mindfulness helps keep a positive environment in the classroom and help strengthen our relationships with students.
