About This Event
Worldwide, 20.5% of youths are struggling with anxiety symptoms,* and yoga has the potential to help. Join us to learn how many of the skills we teach can help kids navigate the mind and body's response to stress. In this workshop, we explore ways kids can better understand their response to challenges, increase their ability to regulate emotions, and lower their anxiety while boosting their mood.
You will learn:
- How to shift thinking about anxiety as a group of symptoms to how we survive a challenge
- How to use Mindful MEDS (Movement, Exhale, Drink Water and Squat Spot) to lower stress and anxiety in children (these are skills that can help adults, too)
- An accessible definition of mindfulness known as The Three C’s: Curious, Calm, and Connected To The Moment
*“About 11.6% of kids had anxiety in 2012, up 20% from 2007. But during the pandemic, those numbers nearly doubled, such that 20.5% of youth worldwide now struggle with anxiety symptoms'' (American Psychological Association, Oct 2022).
