Our kids are living through a rising tide of anxiety as they navigate a challenging and ever-changing world. The symptoms of anxiety can easily overwhelm children, diminishing their joy and interfering with learning, relationships and overall wellbeing. But our kids have capacity, and through mindfulness-based movement they can learn to access their inner resources and tell their own minds a different story about their personal power. Join Jennifer Cohen Harper to explore how movement can transform how your young clients see themselves, and what they believe they are capable of.
