LITTLETON, NH -- Penny Zuk Mckinnon BSN, RN, and school nurse at Lakeway Elementary School, recently hosted three presenters for "Mindful May Mondays" at the school.
The topics presented were Qigong with Becca Goodson; Mindfulness with Erin Woo; and Chair yoga with Cathy Hartshorn. The classes were one hour long, and the entire staff of Supervisory Union 84 were invited.
The attendance for the Mindful Mondays, and the reflections on the evaluations, were very positive. The attendees learned breathing techniques, how to move energy with Qigong, and how to do yoga while sitting in a chair. Mindfulness, Qigong, and Yoga can be practiced every day to promote less stress and relaxation in our daily lives.
"Nurse Penny," who is finishing her master's degree at Plymouth State University in Personal and Organizational Health, is looking forward to bringing more Mindfulness to Lakeway Elementary. She is also the Health and Safety coordinator for the district this year.
