Connection with others is absolutely vital to our well-being. It fosters a sense of belonging, of acceptance, and this is important for everyone, and especially for children, who are learning to navigate the world. This is why I chose the word connect to be the first word of this caption that represents the feeling and experience of a ZenKids Yoga class. Without that basic connection, how can anything more happen? I strive to connect with every student, to recognize them for who they are, and to invite them to feel at easy and comfortable so that they can then let go and experience all that a kids' yoga class has to offer. Once we connect, we can breathe a little easier, once we breathe easy, we can relax into the movements of our poses, and once we relax into the movement , well, maybe we can even laugh a little. Sometimes a lot! Okay, mostly a lot!
What do you do in your activities of daily living, with friends and family that fosters connection in some way?
