Allison Morgan, M.A. Explains Her Zensational Kids Program
Podcast Episode 112 Release Date: May 5, 2017
On this podcast Allison Morgan, MA, OTR, E-RYT tells you how and why the Zensational Kids program helps children relax in the classroom so that they can learn and grasp their lessons easily with less stress and anxiety. Allison is a pediatric occupational therapist, and registered Yoga Alliance teacher who has worked with children of all abilities for over 25 years to improve their academic performance. After taking her first Yoga class, she noticed how calm it made her feel. Later, she began to wonder whether the children in her classes had ever felt a similar calmness. Subsequently, Allison introduced her students to Yoga and got amazing results.
Allison explains how no learning can occur in the classroom when a child’s “flight-flight-freeze” nervous system mechanism is activated. This means that whenever students are “up tight” or anxious, as a rule, they can never perform at their best due to how the brain is hardwired. Allison says that the most important person in the classroom is the teacher since she or he has the responsibility to set the tone and expectations for learning to take place. Allison is the author of the children’s book Wisdom Within and is the founder of Educate 2B: Tools for Engaged Learning and Living. This yoga and mindfulness program has been instrumental in bringing mind/body practices into educational and therapeutic settings. EDUCATE 2B supports school communities in building a greater culture of self-awareness, emotional regulation, compassion, and empathy.
