Finding New Ways to Connect
JENNIFER COHEN HARPER
Children struggling with anxiety, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, trauma, and other challenges often need more than talk therapy to heal and build resilience. They need to reconnect with their bodies, discover how to harness their inner resources, and develop a sense of their own strength and agency. This workshop offers an accessible process for meeting these needs using the powerful tools of yoga and mindfulness. Learn to:
- Share yoga and mindfulness practices in a developmentally appropriate manner to maximize embodiment and sense of agency
- Use a well-tested methodology based on five elements—Connect, Breathe, Move, Focus, Relax—to support self-awareness and self-regulation
- Practice and teach 10 powerful and versatile activities, even if you have no prior yoga or mindfulness experience
