KIDS YOGA AND MINDFULNESS IN A
The children living in one of the three houses under the CCA ARISE homeless shelter network will play Yoga and Mindfulness with Lani Rosen-Gallagher, an incredible kids yoga teacher who brings fun and calm everywhere she goes. Lani will share a trauma-informed approach to offering the kids coping tools they can bring with them for the rest of their lives.
This project is made possible by our partnership with Here To Be and the lululemon Westport CT store.
"This practice of yoga has touched me so deeply in my life and I know it can help others find the coping skills so necessary to living a healthy, peaceful, joyful life. It fills my heart to be able to teach kids & teachers to use yoga, breathing and mindfulness as a tool for calm in order to be able to get through the hard things. We all go through hard things and having the tools to get through them is SO important. I truly feel like sharing this with others is a gift!"
