Lighting the Fire

I am honoured to be asked to teach again at the Lighting the Fire conference (May 10-12th, 2017, Winnipeg) hosted by the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre.  As a gathering for discussing approaches to Indigenous education, honouring First Nation culture, and ensuring student success, a piece of that puzzle is drawing attention to the self-care of educators and leaders.  Learning to take care of ourselves is the first step to learning how to take care of others, and yoga or any other awareness practice can play a pivotal role in cultivating physical, mental and spiritual health.  I will be leading two breathing (pranayama) workshops on the morning of May 12th.  As a simple, accessible form of yoga, breathing practices can be a way to work with anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression.  Basic breathing practices are easy to learn and to incorporate into day-to-day routine.
