Dedicated to bringing the tools of mindfulness and yoga to children and teens and adults.
It is in Marianne's heart to bring mindful practices to school settings and communities in her area. She believes that this is a time of great challenge and opportunity for children growing up in today’s world, and that these practices can prepare children (and grown-ups) to meet these challenges with compassion, kindness, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and confidence-skills that will last a life time, and serve both the children and the communities they are a part of.
MINDFUL YOGA METHODOLOGY
Secular-based and Trauma-informed
The Mindful Yoga Programs are based on Little Flower Yoga's secular evidence-based, trauma-informed methodology, a proven curriculum designed to help you become the best version of yourself, learning life skills that can help you navigate life's challenges now and for years to come. LFY's proven curriculum challenges individuals to learn in new ways, making connections, and recognizing their tremendous capacity to achieve.
This approach incorporates five key elements in each session: Connect, Breathe, Move, Focus and Relax. Through these elements, and within a framework of respect for all people, compassionate communication, and joyful exploration, students are taught fundamental life skills that are immediately available for daily use.
