Give your child the gift of Mindfulness




Breathe...

Learn to calm your mind, relax your body and focus your attention!


In today's world, the lives of our children are becoming increasingly hurried and stressed.  Whether it be academic, social, emotional or environmental, the stresses they face are real and have the potential to interfere with their ability to learn.  We are seeing difficulties with attention and concentration, impulse control, problems with physical health and a decreased sense of happiness.  Mindfulness practice provides the tools children need to smoothly navigate through all the difficulties and challenges they will encounter and help them to be more balanced, grounded and empowered in the midst of life's ups and downs.  


C.A.L.Mfor Kids 
is an 6 week  interactive class introducing kids to tools and techniques that will help them both in school and in life. Through games, movement, discussion and activities children will learn to focus their attention, increase their self-awareness, manage their different emotions and control their impulses.   This class will help kids cope with the stress, worry and anxiety that is so prevalent in today's society.

What parents are saying...

"I loved how you gave tangible tools for managing stress & anger.  The recaps were extremely useful to make me understand what you covered in class & what to work on during that week with my son.  The whole experience exceeded my expectations.  Thank you for creating this much needed teachings for our kids!"

"In this day and age I don't think there is a better gift to give a child, than the practice of mindfulness, and that this course was a perfect introduction into the philosophy and techniques behind it.  Eight also seems like a really timely age to begin."

"Was a perfect combination between tools, discussion and crafting."

"As a whole, the tools have given more confidence and my child felt better prepared to handle tricky situations.

"I had signed my son up without his prior consent and he was hesitant to go but always would leave happier than he came in;-)"


"Some resistance to go, but then enjoyed every class"

"I am so happy that I you offered this class and helped my son hear about these valuable ideas and skills."

"I wish it could last longer (more weeks)"

"I loved this class. My son didn't always want to go but he felt so much better after. We're working on getting him to use his mindful tools at home but when I tell him to go do a mindful activity he does so much well after. I would love to continue these with him. The things that he learned about how his brain processes emotions really resonated with him."
