Last night, as I was getting ready for bed and I got a text from an Early Childhood Educator named Becky, who wanted to share a lovely message she had just received from a parent of a child she taught.
Now I have known Becky for many years and I know how dedicated and passionate she is about the work she does with young children. In fact she is so dedicated that last spring Becky took, not only the Calm Kids Yoga Teacher Training for ECE's, but also the Learn to Teach Simple Meditation to Young Children training. Once completed she wholehearted set about sharing the power and magic of yoga, mindfulness and meditation in her work with young kids.
So here is the True Story part....
Her text to me said: Tommy's mother just texted me to say that he was teaching them Melting Heart Pose, to calm himself down before bed Wanted to share. XO Wow...this simply "melted" my heart! Here we had a four year old little boy teaching his parents how to use yoga & mindfulness to calm himself (and them) before bed!
This is EXACTLY why I developed calmkidsyoga.ca in the first place! I could not have been more thrilled to hear this story!
Let's all spread the love, joy and magic of yoga💕
