The focus of this program is Energy & Emotional Awareness. Kids learn many wonderful, fun and creative tools to help them work with their emotions, release stress, connect with their hearts, and calm their bodies and minds. We do this through group discussion, energy tools, games, art, yoga, breathing techniques, mindfulness skills, role-playing, connecting with nature, music, and guided meditation. The healing power of sound is incorporated into every class with Native American Flute. This is a rejuvenating, non-strenuous class. Kids typically feel wonderful, peaceful and happy by the end of the class!
For the WORKSHOPS, we will discuss any school anxiety or stress that has emerged since the start of school. We may spend a good portion of the workshops outdoors at the Smiley, weather permitting. Connecting with Nature is an important theme in all the classes. A 3.5 hour workshop consists of a variety of activities, including many listed above. Each workshop is unique, and beneficial for new or returning students.
