The Winter theme is “Kindness is Contagious." Neuroscience tells us that kindness is contagious. Simply put, when we perform an act of kindness, this encourages others to act in a similar way. But kindness like any other skill, takes practice. This session, through fun kinesthetic learning activities, we will look for and spread kindness to ourselves and others. From saying please to sharing, your child will learn how to spread kindness in everyday situations at school and at home to promote positive behavior, good habits, and happiness. We teach kindness concepts through aerial yoga poses, art, kinesthetic learning, and games. Each class will offer strategies to help kids build resilience to stress, develop a growth mindset, focus their attention, and enhance their self-regulation skills. Additionally, kids will have fantastic time learning the introductory 20 poses that are needed for level 2-3. Class instruction is modified to suit differing ages and ability levels. Our theme changes each session so children frequently take this course multiple times before moving on to mixed level and/or level two. These classes offer aerial yoga instruction with lessons on mindfulness, social & emotional learning, empathy, self-awareness, stress-management and tools to manage today's social challenges so that students can be happy and mindful in school and life! Sessions are taught by Dr. Tracy, founder of Mindful Child Aerial Yoga and we limit our class size for optimal support and learning.
