How do we raise thoughtful, compassionate, emotionally healthy children? It’s a question many parents and caregivers ask in this fast-paced world of smart phones, social media, and the go-go-go pace of modern life.

Kids Yoga Guide to Mindfulness with Jenga:
Kids Yoga Guide to Mindfulness with Jenga is a great way to introduce your kids to mindfulness in a play way with Jenga. We practice silence (sometimes it’s suspenseful), and watch and support each other. We notice our breath, and we enjoy the calm and quiet. We all practice the yoga poses together and see how high we can build the tower. In our video you will see us practicing plank, slide, eagle, plow, fish, and the mindfulness practice of “Peace Begins with Me”, as we did in our previous Mindfulness Month video! Enjoy your Jenga Play! Namaste and Play!
Playing Jenga with yoga poses is about being intentional, present and mindful of your body, your mind and being supportive of your family and friends while you play. Most importantly it’s FUN!
