"WE CAN'T ALWAYS CHOOSE THE MUSIC LIFE PLAYS FOR US, BUT WE CAN CHOOSE HOW WE DANCE TO IT!"
I am a reiki master as well as an Early Childhood Educator with my degree in Child and Youth Care.
I have spent 25 years working with children and families and the last 7 years diving deeper into energy work. I see the rich relevance of this for children.
Why is it so important to bring this into our young children's lives?
Research shows that practicing mindfulness can improve attention spans for just about anyone
Helps children learn how to pause in all types of situations and respond in a thoughtful way rather than just reacting. This skill is especially helpful when they are faced with challenges or encounter struggles with peers
Children who use mindfulness also develop a better understanding of how their brains work. They may even develop a sense of curiosity about why they feel the way they feel
Teaching children mindfulness can impact their cognitive skills, particularly the executive functions performed by the brain.
I have developed a 7 week MINDFUL program which incorporates child friendly mediations made by me, movement, simple tools and strategies for children to stay connected to this rich energy they have within.
Each week focuses on one of our 7 energy chakras as a theme. They will have access to meditations at home, be given materials to use with parents, and more.
