In this workshop, your child will learn:
Children will learn how to become aware of their breath and use it to regulate and ground their emotions. Children will first use the Breathing Ball to learn how to mindfully breathe in and out. Then, children will learn how to do Mountain Breath, a type of breathing kids can do with their hands!
Children will learn briefly about how emotions are information. Becoming aware of our emotions in an experience allows us to name them and tame them. Children will learn through playing a game where we name the color of our feelings based on the situation and emotion.
Frustration tolerance is one of the most important things for children to learn emotionally. During this section of the workshop, children will learn how to identify where they feel frustration is in their body. Then, children will learn a meditation to make the frustration less.
Children will learn how to become aware of their body through trying out short yoga poses and body meditations. All children will be given space to choose to share how their body feels and what feels good to them.
One of the most important aspect of creating our well-being is appreciation. In this section, children will learn how to practice gratitude by learning what gratitude is and creating a craft of the things they are grateful for.
