Parenting Game-Changer Workshops—Different Topics, Held Monthly
Yoga Calm: For school-age youth. The tools and skills that Yoga Calm nurtures provide the resilience and “grit” that more and more educators agree is key to children’s success, both in school and after graduation. But it’s more than just grit. Or attitude. Or a growth mindset. Or leadership skills.
It’s emotional intelligence. It’s resources for thriving.
The sessions engage heart, mind and body with a combination of physical skills, social skills games, and mindfulness activities. It helps kids develop emotional intelligence, communication skills, trust, and empathy and provides for a calmer home and more productive school environment. Held throughout the Philomath School District. And TBD @ Monroe Grade School
Girls Circles & Council for Boys & Young Men: For youth ages 10-18 who want to learn how to express themselves better, develop ways to make healthy decisions and learn how to feel great about themselves.
