    This event has passed Get Tickets

    Event description

    Join Emanuelle Jones for this 2 hour immersive session where you will learn theory and practices to improve your own wellbeing. Participants will learn bite-sized mindfulness and breathing practices to draw upon when the going gets tough. 

    You will leave the session with a plan to manage your own wellbeing with simple tools that are drawn from Martin Seligmans PERMA model of positive psychology.

    We all know teaching can be stressful, so how can we be expected to inspire young people when we ourselves are struggling against the clock whilst desperately trying to manage our own energy levels and workload?

    - A casual relief teacher, pre-service teacher, classroom teacher or teacher's aid? 

    - Working in a high-stress environment?

    - Under pressure to get a never-ending amount of things done?

    - Keen to learn how to keep calm amongst the crazy!?!

    You will learn:

    • How to monitor and constantly improve your wellbeing 
    • Bite-sized mindfulness and breathing practices
    • About the PERMA model of positive psychology
    • To recognise the signs that your wellbeing is declining
    • How to create a personal intervention plan to maintain your health (and sanity!) in an achievable way

    About Your Teacher:

    Emanuelle Jones

    My passion for mindfulness, yoga and meditation began in my early twenties when I discovered how transformative these practices could be for my own mental health and well-being. Both the knowledge and practical application that I developed aided me to get control my crippling anxiety and perfectionism. Since then, I have made it my personal mission to share these transformative practices with the world.

    As a high school teacher for over 20 years, with teaching experience in a variety of schools internationally, I have had the opportunity not only to share my passion for teaching but also work extensively in the wellbeing space. Side by side with teaching I have continued to study;  having obtained a Master's in Educational Leadership, continued study in the space of Positive Education with the University of Pennsylvania, the  ICF Coaching Accreditation, Senior Registration as a Yoga Teacher and Mentor, Professional Meditation Association Registration and I am currently on the pathway to accreditation as a Clinical Psychologist.

    Whilst leading from the middle within school I have had first hand experience of the pressures placed upon staff and how this can lead to burnout. As the Staff & Student Wellbeing Leader and Mindfulness Facilitator for a decade, I observed a huge shift in school culture when wellbeing practices were embedded into the fabric of a school.

    Staff empowerment is key; I believe it is quintessential that staff are equipped with a toolkit of practices that promote self-care, resilience and stress management skills. With simple shifts in perspective and an array of wellbeing practices, staff are able to self-manage the fluctuating requirements of busy school life. The rich outcome is that staff enjoy being at work and are nourished by their vocation.

    I founded Breathe2B in 2020 to continue this work on a larger scale to help as many people as possible to transform their lives and those of the young people that they are privileged to care for.
