Movement and Mindfulness

This group that makes practicing mindfulness and yoga moves for for young children is certainly worth checking out. Many of  their suggested activities are perfect for teaching self-regulation and some for emotion management. A friend did the training and said it had lots of activities that counselors can use in classroom lessons or small groups. Check it out. My favorite is the Mondey Wisdom chant that goes along with doing cross crawl. I am trying to incorporate more movement, music, and rhythms in my lessons and groups that are compatible with the MindUp curriculum from the Hawn Foundation.
