Facilitating life skills for emotional & mental well-being to children and youth 3 - 18 years & their schools 

Offering training options that are as unique as we are... Register Now

Who: Anyone who works with, volunteers with, coaches, guides, educates, parents (etc!) children and youth that wants to see them succeed regardless of their circumstance or perceived ability.

Why: Because every child deserves to - and can - SHINE! However, it takes a team and this includes you because, by way of your role in their life, you are in a unique position to model, create and support what they need. 

What: While I do utilize yoga as a means to facilitate this environment and tools for children and youth, the foundational elements to this practice can be accessed within any field. Through this training you will discover how to create:

  1. The Framework: An asset-based, Positive Youth Development approach to working with, and being with, children and youth that recognizes, supports and values their innate strengths and abilities to get them engaged in their life! 
  2. The Environment: Ahimsa…non-violence of thoughts, words and actions towards ourselves, and others (creating an emotionally and physically safe space).
  3. The Dialogue: From drugs, war, mental health, suicide, anxiety, body image, self worth, values, etc. They think it, you discuss it (without judgment).
  4. The Tools: Mindfulness-based practices; Positive Psychology tools; Social-Emotional Learning in action, Neuroplasticity at work, and of course, Yoga (including breath, sequences and philosophies) applied to every day scenarios.
