Peace For Kids - Trauma Informed Yoga

have a vision and a dream.... to teach yoga to all, from children to seniors and to every one in between.

By providing children with such fabulous skills for life, maybe, just maybe, when life becomes hard, our children will know that they can turn to their yoga mat and bring stillness, happiness, safety and nurturing back.

 

 What is Peace For Kids?

 

‘Peace For Kids’ is a Yoga Therapy and Mindfulness based program to lessen anxiety and stress and increase resilience in children from the age of 5 to teens (see ‘Peace For Teens’). 

 

Yoga and Mindfulness practices can increase multiple neurotransmitters and hormones such as GABA, serotonin, and dopamine—all natural anti-depressants. They have been shown to increase levels of melatonin, helping to initiate sleep, improving sleep quality and sleep regulation, as well as increasing levels of oxytocin, the “bonding hormone”, thus helping with feelings of connectedness and “being seen and heard”.

 

The program has been created to offer all children who suffer from anxiety, a developmentally appropriate program that gives children the skills, practice and support to utilise coping strategies that lessen the symptoms of anxiety and stress.  This program helps children to build their emotional resilience so they are better equipped to deal with the day to day stresses that life brings them. The program also involves parental involvement and commitment to supporting the strategies at home.  ​​

Available for schools, workshops, private sessions, specialised groups and more...
