In a world of over-stimulation (test taking, crowded schedules, emojis), mindfulness is a precious practice for children and teens. Mindfulness provides children with essential and accessible tools that allow them to tap into what is going on both inside and outside of their bodies at the present moment. Yoga movement allows children to playfully explore mindfulness in a way that is both fun and illuminating.
This introductory workshop will provide an opportunity for children, ages 6-9, to learn about the magic of mindfulness through yoga movement, breath-work, and meditation. Children will also engage in an arts-based mindfulness practice and create their very own “mind jar”, which can be used as both a tool and a reminder of mindfulness practices. By the end of the workshop, children will have a better understanding of what mindfulness is, why it’s helpful, and how to practice it.
