I will see you again on January 28th when we resume. For those of you who haven't had a chance to make it yet, we meet in the (portable) gym from 9:00-9:25. It is a lovely way to start our day with yoga, meditation, and breathing. This is open to students, teachers, siblings and parents of QAE. Beginners welcome! It is NOT a club; it is free. Please arrive ready to start on time so that our practice can be uninterrupted.
Some of you know that I have a background in dance and taught yoga to our 1st and 3rd graders; it is my goal this year (and beyond!) to bring an intentional mindful practice to QAE. So while I am not a "real" teacher of mindfulness, I do know that gathering as a community, setting intentions, and taking time to focus on the present and our breath is powerful in and of itself. I hope to see you there- feel free to drop by to any of the weeks; it is not part of a series or skill building.
On another note, parents have asked me about Positive Discipline parenting classes- there is still room in the March series which you can find information about here. I was also featured in Emma Summer's Your Fonder Heart blog; she attended my workshop last fall.
Finding time to practice (and model for your children) mindfulness can lead to great benefits for the whole family; whether it is in an unhurried meal, walk with a friend, or simply sitting in gratitude.
See you on the 28th!
