"Mindful Movers", "Tween" and "Teen" classes take on a deeper dedication to exploring mindfulness and what this current "buzz" word means to our young people today! Each class is held in an 8-week series of classes which encourages practice each week.
Each class begins with a mindfulness lesson, based on the Mindful Schools curriculum, followed by a series of yoga movements/games 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, & much more. Children are encouraged to discover the ability to anchor themselves when things seem out of control, reducing anxiety and stress. Through movements, stillness, stories, and games, the children mindfully explore their inner and outer worlds, while cultivating beneficial life skills!
Classes are held in a very welcoming and comfortable setting with small numbers in attendance and focus on building a solid social-emotional foundation. Sessions include lessons on Self-management (self-regulation, self-awareness, body awareness, Coping strategies (maintain emotional balance), Resiliency (perseverance, growth mindset), Compassion for self and others (kindness practices), Attention/focus skills (managing our busy minds, staying in the zone), Listening to the body's signals (recharging their bodies and minds), Listening before injury or accident (intuition) .
All of the Movement, Mindfulness and Me classes are designed to encourage children to "tune in" to their Inner "Cheerleader" and less to their Inner "Critic"!
Ready to get back to after school activities?
We are ready and prepared! We are continuing a limited class size, 7 to 8 children per class. Yogis will be encouraged to wear their masks as instructed by their parents/families when on their mats and be asked to wear them in the studio when not actively on their mats.
At MMM, we respect and honor each and every families personal choice at this time. We are maintaining an environment that promotes total body health and wellness and
that includes attendance at your families yoga classes!
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
*Our adult class schedule will update beginning next week!
Some classes will remain outdoors and times will adjust!
