About this presentation
The COVID-19 pandemic has made this year uniquely challenging for families with school-aged children. Lock-down and social isolation is hard on adults, but even harder on children who are wired for physical, interactive play. Anxiety and depression rates among young children and teens has significantly risen this year, layering additional stress on parents already juggling work upheavals, financial strains, and zoom-schooling. Parents and kids need a way to remember how to play, how to reset their nervous systems and shake-free of all that accrued tension. In this workshop, Julie will draw from her decades of study in movement therapy for children and families. She’ll integrate yoga, breathing and meditation, QiGong, and Brain Dance to create a family experience of shared joy, interlaced with coping strategies appropriate for children and grown-ups of all ages!
