Free 30-minute Exercise to Release Stress (Ages 5 – 9)
December 23, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 23, 2020
“30-minute Exercise to Release Stress is an effective, multistage class that begins with high-energy exercises and ends in a heart-focused, relaxing meditation! Our kids are practicing meditation on their own and coping much better with anxiety after just a few classes.
Benefits of Meditation:
SELF-CONTROL: Increases emotional control in children (emotional self-regulation)
HEALTH: Increases positive emotions which improves mental and physical health
BOND: Enhances the bond between kids and parents when practiced as a family (Parents are encouraged to participate in classes)
COPE: Helps children deal more effectively with difficult emotions such as anxiety, worry and fear
Although we have seen results after even just one class, a consistent practice will maximize these benefits.
We tried your class earlier this week and my almost 4 year old son loved it. He even used the technique when he was getting ready to throw a tantrum 🙂
Since these classes my son has been initiating meditation when becoming upset, at sunset and before dinner on his own.
My daughter has started using some of the breathing exercises you teach when she is feeling upset.
I really appreciate this class. It helps me focus and relax. It helps me take negative thoughts off my mind and I love it.
I’m so relaxed now, I want to take a nap.
When I do the meditation it makes me feel better inside. You are the best teacher and this class is awesome!”
