The mindfulness event celebrates the first United Nations adopted International Yoga Day and coincides with Father’s Day and will be great fun for the whole family connecting the “superpowers” of mindfulness and yoga. This is going to be an awesome event.
The event aims to raise awareness of mindfulness as a tool for improving learning, health and well being through yoga and the arts, in support of Ivy Child’s mission to enrich communities and the children they raise.
Ivy Child International is a non-profit organization working to enhance the social and emotional well-being of children worldwide by recognizing their multicultural needs, and using education rooted in positive psychology as a uniting force to inspire resilience and leadership.
Dan Harris, ABC News anchor and author of 10% Happier is one of many who have touted the benefits of mindfulness saying, “The proposition is that you should learn how to respond wisely to things that happen to you rather than just reacting blindly, and that my friends is a superpower.”
Through multicultural programs and workshops, participants will get one step closer to becoming a mindful superhero with each breath and yoga pose. A wide variety of entertainment, food, vendor tables and interactive sessions will be offered as well.
The cost for participants who register early is only $10. Businesses, organizations, families and individuals are invited to participate in the Yogathon and support Ivy Child’s mindfulness initiatives. Ivy Child’s innovative programming for hospitals, healthcare centers and schools and the community feature yoga, mindfulness, meditation, music and art.
Details: Ivy Child International is hosting their second annual New England Mindful Kids Yogathon on June 21st from 1-5 PM at Worcester State University’s John Coughlin Memorial Field. Participants are encouraged to soar to new heights of health and happiness celebrating “Every Child is a Superhero.”
