Curriculum program with children!” -Erin McFarland, Teacher, CA

“The Movement & Mindfulness Curriculum and Certification helped me better understand the
learning process so I could immediately start using the included tools, games, and acctivities to
support kids in being more self-regulating and successful.” -Amy Morrison, Yoga Teacher and Mom, MD

I feel empowered to use the tools and the principles in my life and my classroom. I’m leaving
this wonderful training re-energized, inspired, and fully equipped to make more mindful, playful,
creative, embodied education happen!” -April Cantor, SoulShine Life – Yoga for Kids and Families, Brooklyn, NY

difference in kids’ development and abilities. It’s great to see them understanding why, when, and
how to use the Adventure Skills to help themselves.”-Lori Czech, Teacher, MA

“The Movement & Mindfulness Curriculum and certification training gave me the tools I was looking for to integrate yoga and mindfulness in clear, fun, smart, and carefully supported ways.  This was the best experience I’ve had at a training in over a decade.  I am armed and ready to create more peaceful warriors for years to come. So grateful.” -Erin Esposito Peron
