why movement

mindfulness

+ meditation

for kids

Movement, Meditation and Mindfulness (MMM) is beneficial for children of all ages and even adults! Movement supports the development of gross motor skills and coordination. Mindfulness develops self regulation skills and supports and balances the autonomic nervous system. And meditation improves the ability to focus and learn and reduces stress and anxiety levels.

 

The key to encouraging children to participate is in designing engaging age-appropriate sessions that support healthy development, teach vital coping skills and are FUN. Sshh, we don’t have to tell them it’s good for them …. kids will figure that out when they notice how AMAZING they feel!

testimonials

I walked away from this training with tools I could implement immediately in my daily work as a Child Life Specialist for the pediatric hematology/oncology population. The mindfulness components of her training have been the MOST helpful as they have empowered children to cope with extremely difficult procedures.

- Amy Garcia MS, CCLS, Certified Child Life Specialist,

University Medical Center Cancer Center, Lubbock, TX

"I learned so much and walked away with multiple ideas I can use in my job as a behavioral health therapist to children and adolescents. In the two weeks since the training, I’ve used at least one idea from the workshop every day! I would strongly recommend this wonderful opportunity to anyone who works with kids or has even a small interest in yoga.”

- Nicole Shields,

Behavioral Therapist

“I have been incorporating A LOT of mindfulness and breath awareness to my elementary classes and it has been going fantastically!”
