Mindful Movers for Homeschoolers

Could a young student in your life benefit from learning how to anchor his/her thoughts and attention when things seem out of control? Techniques to reduce anxiety and stress? Develop self-regulation skills & strengthen the ability to sustain attention in our fast paced and demanding world today? Build resiliency and cultivate self-compassion?

“Mindful Movers” classes take on a deeper dedication to exploring mindfulness and what this current “buzz” word means to our young people today. Through an 8 to 12-week series of classes. Each class begins with a mindfulness lesson, based on the Mindful Schools curriculum, followed by a series of yoga movements and closing with a time of relaxation.  The lessons are designed to develop self-regulation skills, strengthen the ability to sustain attention, enhance compassion toward themselves and others, and much more. They discover the ability to anchor themselves when things seem out of control, reducing anxiety and stress. Through movement, stillness, stories, and games, the children mindfully explore their inner and outer worlds, while cultivating a very beneficial life skill!
