Mindfulness and Movement Kids Practice

20160712_112319.jpgSchool is almost out and kids are getting ready to run with summertime fun like never before.  This summer is a great time to try something new and give your child a gift that will last a lifetime.  The gift I am speaking about is a Kids Practice series involving Mindfulness and Movement. 

Starting on Wednesday, June 14th through July 5th I will be inviting children in 4th grade and up to participate in a Mindfulness and Movement Kids Practice from 10:30am to 12pm.  I will be sharing a movement practice with the students first and then welcoming them into a Mindfulness Reflection based project for the 2nd half of practice time.  The syllabi of my work is based on Movement for You kids practice that I have developed and documented in 2011.  My work with Movement for You kids practice has been shared in recreational programs across the country, in inner city schools both in Philadelphia, New York City, Arizona, and throughout the Lehigh Valley area.  This past year I have been sharing quite a bit of my work at Lehigh Valley Academy with a Yoga Club for the students and also in the classrooms with my Mindfulness Techniques Workshops. My private practice work at my home studio has been growing by the day and serving the Lehigh Valley with much care and grace to build stronger families and stronger communities.

What does Mindfulness mean to You?  Together lets break it down and explore the ABC fundamental basics of being Mindful together. I will share the importance of Breath, focus and dedication towards something, love for self leads us to respect and love others, respect with a capital R, hard work even when our emotions come knocking on our door, collaboration with a capital C, taking care of our body and mind, and most important of all having compassion for ourselves and for others.

The student’s responsibilities in class will be to come with an open mind to learn and work together.  I always say show up, be open, and endless possibilities of adventure and growth will come before you.  I look forward to seeing you in the studio.  Please touch base via email lindsayschaefer@movementforyou.com if you are interested in giving your child a gift of Mindfulness and Movement this summer.  The class series is $90 for the 4 week session and due before the class start date.
