To help children and their caregivers learn more about mindfulness, Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital has partnered with the Shanthi Project to offer three consecutive Tuesday sessions free of charge for all attendees. New sets of dates in May and June have just been added. (See specific dates through link at end of article.)
On Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., each 45-minute virtual class will include mindful activities, movements and games taught by a certified child mindfulness and yoga instructor. Children will learn simple and practical techniques to help them feel calm, focused and connected to themselves and those around them.
These sessions are appropriate for children in kindergarten through third grade. Children must be joined by a parent or guardian for each virtual class, and attendees must go to all three sessions.
Registration is limited to 10 children.
