Embodied pedagogy is not a phrase one hears often enough, but its basic principles are at the core of my teaching practice. You might have your own definition, but mine centers on putting the reality of the body back into the classroom, encouraging students to move around and to be IN their bodies even as they're in their minds and introducing movement, breathing, meditation, and power poses into the educational environment. In this workshop, I'll begin by explaining and demoing some of these techniques, from power poses to Samuel Delany's raised hand exercise, and give some examples of how they've positively affected my classroom's environment.

I'd like most of the session to be idea-sharing, though - what do YOU do in your classroom? How do you respect students' preferences, physical abilities, and/or range of motion while offering embodiment activities? What are some Universal Design embodiment activities that students of all (dis)abilities could benefit from?
