Event Details

This full day seminar introduces and immerses participants to the matter of traumatic stress, its relationship to the behaviors we encounter in kids and the ways in which it interacts with the mind-body-brain integration that is so important for focus, overall health, successful relationships and living with joy. The presenter will share effective and accessible tools and strategies grounded in movement, yoga and mindfulness that can be shared with kids and teens in a variety of environment and situations- off the mat! Many environments are not set up for yoga on a mat or floor.

Participants will be introduced to movement-based techniques that can be experienced in a seated position. Kids and teens with differences in abilities who are supported in a seated position can have access to yoga through modified strategies. In order for kids to be equipped with strategies that they can take with them anywhere they go, practitioners need to be prepared to offer simple and sustainable movement and mindfulness strategies that respond to the fast-paced and packed days our kids are navigating daily. This workshop is applicable to therapists as well as parents and family members.
