  • Transform your work with kids—The secret to co-regulation for better attachment
  • Master application of the 7 senses for increased connection, effectiveness and accessibility
  • Combat the hijackers of executive function and emotion regulation

Anxiety, panic, inattention and stress are at epidemic proportion for our kids and teens, leaving them unable to play, learn and grow. Many kids feel disconnected, lonely, scared, sad and angry, left vulnerable to depression, anxiety, disconnection, and psychological and physiological challenges.

Anxiety and fear are the grand hijackers of kids attention, focus and self-regulation.

In this highly experiential seminar, we will dig deep into the most challenging diagnoses and behaviors including:

  • Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
  • Reactive Attachment Disorder
  • Anxiety, intense worry, fear
  • Sleeplessness
  • Tantrums
  • Aggression and angry outbursts
  • Withdrawal
  • School-avoidance
  • Impulsivity
  • Risk taking behaviors
  • and more . . .

This integrative approach to yoga and mindfulness includes:

  • Sensory integration activities
  • Co-regulation mastery
  • Aromatherapy
  • Chair-based exercises
  • Cognitive behavioral approaches
  • Sensorimotor modalities

Experience each activity, gain specific language for how to modify it for kids, and discover how to weave it into your existing practice.
