Programs for Children 

Designed to help children relax and restore in Nature so they may respond to stress more skillfully by learning to pay attention, make better choices, regulate their emotions and solve problems. In Nature, children may deactivate their nervous systems and open up to new challenges, learning and relationships. 

Story Yoga

Children embody animals in a story while practicing mindful tools such as breath-work and constructive rest to help them learn to self-regulate difficult emotions.
