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.
All trainings are led by leading pediatric yoga specialist, Lisa Roberts.
