Yoga and Art Therapy in the School

Yoga and Art Therapy in the School

What a blessing it has been to lead yoga and art therapy classes this summer with the Children and Family Urban Movement.  CFUM’s mission is to create a community that yoga and art therapy for kidssupports the potential of children, youth and families through educational success, healthy living, and community engagement.

Introducing the kids to yoga and mindfulness has filled my heart. The children had so much joy in trying new things.

We practiced kid friendly breathing exercises, learned yoga poses, played yoga games, demonstrated partner poses, and everyone loved the stillness and savasana at the end of each session.

As a special treat, each child was able to personalize their very own donated yoga mat. At the end of the summer they will be able to take home their own yoga mat to continue their practice.
