VISION

For our movement programs to create generations of mindful kids, parents & educators, creating ripples in our local communities through our shared values of kindness, connection, inclusivity and play.

Our Core Values

Physical Literacy

We help motivate confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding of how the human body works in bite-sized pieces to children.

 

We introduce fundamental gross and fine motor skills throughout to help children be lifelong and enthusiastic participants in physical activity.

Our curriculum is inspired by:​ yoga, creative movement, BrainDance (Anne Green Gilbert), Eurethmy, Feldenkrais & Bartneiff Fundamentals 

Socio-Emotional Learning

We help children understand their own emotions and that of others, develop empathy, and self-regulation, set and achieve positive goals and experience healthy relationships. 

Each class children participate in mindfulness exercises including reflections, discussions, journaling or art based learning of emotions.

Resilience Tools

We use evidence-based and trauma-informed mindfulness practices and breathing techniques for emotional regulation to help children cope with big feelings and rise from a challenge. 

Each class starts with a check-in where children are encouraged to share and talk about whatever is on their minds. This builds trust, safety and rapport between our instructors and the children we teach.
