Creating a non-violent world

Mindfulness Training for Students

CALMING KIDS trains youth professionals who work with school aged students

CALMING KIDS supports social & emotional wellness, and increased mindfulness through yoga practices. CALMING KIDS was founded in the fall of 2004, originally as a pilot program at Boulder, Colorado’s Heatherwood Elementary School. A Harvard statistician studying the school’s 150 fourth and fifth grade students found Calming Kids effective in teaching children non-violent communication and a respect for their peers’ personal space.

THANK YOU so much for offering this amazing opportunity to help the children I work with. I greatly enjoyed the benefits of feeling relaxed, learning calming mindfulness techniques that will benefit me and our children, and being inspired to find a workout that IS for me. Dee is an incredible instructor and the materials we received are wonderful for our programs. I have already begun using some techniques we learned and they work.
