Kids Mindfulness Series (ages 7-11)

$60Purchase required to enroll
Mindfulness isn’t just for grown ups! Set your kids up to reap the life-long benefits of this valuable skill. Our kids experience intensifying stress as a result of mounting stimuli from school demands, activities, technology, and more. Mindfulness training gives your child a “toolkit” to take on life’s challenges. They can live with increased awareness and attention, strengthened emotional regulation, a fuller capacity to feel compassion and empathy, and an ability to greet life's stress with greater ease.

This series will introduce children to the basic science behind the practice, fill their toolkit with easily accessible practices, and give them a lived experience of the practice's many gifts.

Ages 7-11. Children must be able to work in a group setting, without one-on-one supervision.

She's been teaching yoga to kids and teens at The Fieldston School, where she chairs the Theatre and Dance Department and is most recently co-teaching a course, The Art and Science of Mindfulness. In 2014, Clare began her work on The Fieldston Mindfulness Initiative, which is now in its second year.

Jessica Dixon is a graduate of the 2016 Yoga Haven teacher training program, she thinks of the studio as a home away from home. Jessica has a dual Master’s degree from Bank Street College of Education, and has been teaching (including yoga classes!) at a local preschool since 2013. She delights in seeing her students smile and form new sense-memories as they move, breathe, and have fun.
