The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted almost every aspect of our lives. Our routines were abruptly affected, and we are still learning and improving the way we work, study, and live our lives more steadily. It's natural for both adults and children to feel anxiety, nervousness, and insecurity when facing a crisis like this one.
- Mindfulness and yoga practices can be extremely helpful for children and teens to cope with routine and responsibilities
By incorporating mindfulness and yoga practices into children’s daily routines, we can help them calm anxiety and build healthy coping skills. For children, learning to recognize and manage emotions can have a beneficial impact on behavior, mood, and brain development. On top of that, being seated in front of the computer for the entire day makes it even more essential to get their bodies moving. They are young and full of energy! We offer a balanced combination of mindfulness practices, breathing exercises, and body movement activities. These practices facilitate children to learn how to soothe their nervous systems, improve focus and concentration, better control their impulses, and manage their emotions in a healthier way. Our classes will positively influence activities off the yoga mat and within the child’s household and their school-related affairs.

- Planning for class:
We will be using Zoom, which can be downloaded and accessed on the phone, iPad, or computer. All the child will need is the link bellow to join the class (and a yoga mat if available!). Please try to connect 5-10 minutes prior to class so we make sure we have time to fix any technical issues.
We ask parents and guardians to make sure that the student has enough space at home to move the body safely - ideally using a yoga mat, but it is not mandatory. We encourage parents to explain to their kids that all they need to do is follow directions and that they do not need to touch the device for anything other than class.
We advise to free the use of Wi-Fi from other devices during class to allow optimal connection while streaming.
