Mindfulness for Kids
4 Week Program
3 Different Age Groups
March 24 – April 14
In this four week program, your child will learn a mindfulness-based approach to working with their mind and bodies through meditation, yoga, activities, and play. They will develop a set of inner life skills that will educate and inform them as they progress through the many stages of their personal development. Each week, we will explore a different topic of mindfulness meditation and how it can be applied to improve your child’s focus, concentration, emotional regulation, and pro-social behavior. All teachings are non-religious, educational, and grounded in the science of the mind, body, and brain.
