Using stories, songs, drawing, and movement practices, children will have the opportunity to learn about and practice "meditations" for focusing attention, developing greater body awareness, deepening creativity and finding their "peaceful place".
Few notions could be further from the truth than that childhood is a relatively stress-free time compared with adult life. In fact, children experience love, joy, fear, disappointment and anger with an intensity they may never experience in adulthood.
Meditation can be an important aid we provide our children for coping and even flourishing in their lives at both the personal and academic levels. Meditation can offer even young children a sense of empowerment in regard to their thinking and their emotions, not by repressive self-control, but by enhanced self-understanding and self-acceptance.
All teachings and practices shared are secular and recommended for children ages 5-8.

Mindfulness Yoga Immersive Training
“Frank Jude's Mindfulness Yoga training and correspondence work was the most valuable mindfulness exploration and living practice I've ever done. The meditation techniques and Buddhist philosophy were taught thoroughly and in a way that was very relatable and easy to understand. Frank Jude's subsequent commitment to online/skype interviews every month was unprecedented in terms of the level of guidance, support and much needed encouragement that was offered. Frank Jude's lack of pretense, his humor, and willingness to share from his own experience also made working with him a tremendous joy. For anyone who wishes to not only understand Mindfulness, but to embody the practice, I cannot recommend this training highly enough. This course was nothing short of life-changing.”
-- Jessica Lemon, Senior Modo Yoga Teacher, Toronto
"Frank Jude inspires us to the integrated path of yoga and mindfulness with a true teacher’s voice of clarity, compassion and common sense.”
— Cyndi Lee, author of OM Yoga
