A note from Laura:

'' I have seen first-hand the powerful healing effects that yoga & mindfulness has on children from all backgrounds, and I am passionate about sharing these essential mindfulness tools and techniques to help children and teens express their thoughts, feelings and ideas freely, self-regulate, and heal themselves.  

 

I am limited to how many children I can reach and I need your help!

 

I’m calling on educators, therapists, parents, community workers, health care professionals, social workers, yoga teachers, volunteer workers - and anyone with a passion to create change in their community or world-wide - so that together we can reach more children and young people across the world. Which will ultimately benefit not only individual children but whole families, schools, communities and countries for years to come.''
