Mindfulness & Yoga August Summer Camp

Summer is the perfect time to hit “reset” and pause and relax into a slower pace and give your children the life-long skills they need to strengthen their focus, manage their emotions and detach from negative thoughts. Mindfulness thickens the front part of the brain — the Prefrontal Cortex — what I call, the “smarty pants” part of the brain.

The thicker wiring means that we use this part of the brain more habitually. Rather than slipping into reactivity, when we lose our favorite towel or have to wait for our brothe, we process our thoughts and feelings from this wise center, which manages emotions, solve problems, and houses our focus and concentration. (It really is the miracle spot!)

Children will learn yoga poses and simple mindfulness techniques in our August Summer Camp.

The August Summer Camp is for Kids in Grade 1 – 5 and runs from Monday, August 14 through Wednesday, August 16 from 9 – 11 am.
