Mindful relaxation sessions finish at the end of July

We have been doing these free mindful relaxation for dance teacher, sessions since April and now they are coming to an end. This is because dance teachers are getting ready to get back into their studios and venues to teach once again.

It has been lovely doing these weekly sessions and I hope if you have joined us at any point along the way that you have enjoyed them too.

Good luck to all dance teachers getting back into the swing of classes and coping with all the changes that are required.

Don’t forget there is still time to book a place on the next short online courses beginning in August. Bookings close on Monday 27 July 2020.

Positive psychology for dance teachers – book now

A brand new course Positive psychology for dance teachers is available to book now. You can download information sheet about this new course from the Short Online Courses page.

Running at the same time will be the popular Teaching dance for health, short online course for dance teachers. Both courses are available to book now on the Book a course page.

During lockdown and as some begin to ease out of lockdown there is an alternative reflective task for the usual taught class or session for teachers who cannot teach live in the studio or community venue.

This is a great opportunity to take some CPD.

FREE Mindful relaxation with Sho

If you want to join Sho tomorrow morning – Friday 12 June at 10am (UK time) for 30-40 minutes of Mindful Relaxation for Dance Teachers, leave a comment by clicking on the comment bubble at the top of this post or the comment facility below the post and you will be sent the Zoom link for you to join the session.

This relaxing session gives you time to focus on yourself, something that dance teachers don’t always find time to do.

Preparation for Performance

Many of you will have already downloaded my booklet on Preparation for Performance but if you haven’t then it is below if you want to download it.

I wrote it for Highland Dancers but the exercises. breathing and all are suitable for all dancers (and teachers). In sport they pay attention to preparing for performance instead of leaving it to chance. We can prepare for performance in dance too whether that be for examination, competitions and to make sure we can do our best in class.

You can use the mental training skills and breathing and relaxation techniques to help your students to prepare for their next performance.
