Sometimes kids’ lives can get busy and out of control, and worries can take over. When that happens, knowing how to pause and regain composure with mindfulness can help! This class introduces kids (ages 9 – 12) to mindfulness as a way to find clarity, manage stress, handle difficult emotions, and navigate personal challenges. With breathing, relaxation, and guided meditation exercises, kids will have an entire toolkit at their disposal. Kids will learn to settle their thoughts and look inward through a series of fun writing prompts, games, and meditation exercises.

 

About the Teachers
Our regular teacher, Whitney Stewart, is traveling at this time. She introduces and endorses her MindfulMe—PeacefulMe LLC collaborator, yoga and mindfulness teacher Katie Taber, who will teach the October Mindful Kids session.

Katie Taber always knew that she wanted to teach kids from the time she was in second grade. She told her mom that she wanted to teach Physical Education so she could wear sweat pants to work every day. Katie received a B.S. in Physical Education in 2012 and has been working with kids in a professional environment since then. She is now a kids yoga and mindfulness teacher and loves creating a space where kids feel safe and heard. There was a quote displayed in her childhood PreK classroom that read, “Childhood is a journey not a race.” She carries this philosophy with her so many years later and uses yoga and mindfulness to help kids slow down and enjoy the ride.

Whitney Stewart is a children’s book author and mindfulness instructor. including her recent publications Mindful Kids: 50 Mindfulness Activities for Kindness, Focus, and Calm, and Mindfulness and Meditation: Handling Life with a Calm and Focused Mind (2019) For more information about Whitney Stewart, visit hhtp://whitneystewart.com.
