Guiding children can be joyful and stressful. We often wonder how to calmly respond in moments of challenge, and how to create space for self-care. Join us as we support one another and discover simple tools to bring peace to ourselves, our homes, our schools, and our children. This workshop is designed for anyone guiding babies, children, or teens. Grandparents and teachers are welcome.
Calm Kids Workshop
A unique workshop for children ages 7-12 and a caregiver. Kids and adults can benefit from mindfulness, the simple practice of bringing a gentle, accepting attitude to the present moment. Through awareness we can notice our capacity for calm and create peace in our lives. We can see that stillness is something most children and many adults unknowingly need. The experience will include a brief developmentally appropriate discussion about the brain and behavior, simple mindful exercises, and a guided relaxation in the comfort of a safe space. The practical practices learned can be used in all spaces of life.
Have you wondered about the origins and philosophy of yoga? In this workshop we will discuss facts and discover findings. The guidelines as described in the 8 Limbs of Yoga will be taught along with ways to take the practice off-the-mat and incorporate it into any belief system. Join us in an intention to create space for understanding.
