“Fluid, Loving, Observant & Whole”
Mindfulness Classes for Children
In FLOW children are taught how to be FLUID with their bodies, LOVING with their hearts, OBSERVANT with their minds and WHOLE with their spirits. FLOW is a unique program for children, ages 3 – 13 years old, which combines meditation, yoga, music & movement, art & expression, and connectivity. Students learn about the world around them, and how they fit into it. Students are taught how to connect with their bodies through being fluid through movement as well as the importance of stillness. Class size is small, as children work in cohesive groups to learn how to become connected and part of a productive “unit”. Children work together as they learn about the planet, animals, the earth, space, and how to help sustain the health of the planet by being conscious. Students learn to observe their emotions through meditation, and how to be present, feel, acknowledge, and observe what they are feeling and experiencing. Goals of the program are to introduce awareness of the body and stimulate its motor and creative potential through art, and to explore the connection between the expressive qualities of the body and the mind. In FLOW, we value the creative “process” rather than the “results”, and consider the experimentation as a working method. Children will be encouraged to tap into their self-confidence by developing a relationship with the group through socialization and respect.
