“When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, its our job to share in our calm & not add to their chaos”

~L.R. Knost

Anxious feelings are normal and expected in children at the start of a new school year. As we find ourselves back into routine, bedtimes and after school activities children can become overwhelmed. During this special 1 hour interactive workshop we explore, encourage and give tools to help us transition from Summer to Fall:

-Learn grounding yoga poses to use on your own or with a friend

-Calming breathing games to release anxiety

-Create a special take home craft using mindfulness

**This class is postponed to a date TBA in October

cost: $15 per child (crafting supplies included)

Space is limited, please RSVP to jillann.ma@outlook.com
