how it works

Capturing imaginations through yoga-based play benefits the diagnostic and psychosocial needs of pediatric inpatients while serving as a distraction from the typical clinical setting.

Complementary to expressive (music, art, dance) and physical (OT, PT) therapies, the benefits of Movement, Meditation, and Mindfulness sessions extend beyond supporting diagnoses or clinic visits and hospital stays. Movement, Meditation, and Mindfulness sessions provide children with self-regulation and self-care skills that are invaluable, particularly for those living with chronic illness.

“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. Beyond learning adaptable skills to support patients at varying stages of treatment, Lisa demonstrated effective methods to present ‘yoga’ to patients in a non-intimidating and accessible to all manner... The developmentally appropriate meditation techniques presented in Lisa’s training have also been extremely beneficial to facilitate patients’ coping with the stress and anxiety related to the hospital and a cancer diagnosis. Since returning and implementing this training, I have felt more equipped to empower these kiddos that are truly fighting the hardest battles!”
