As the school season is approaching, we are thrilled to offer our Children's Mindfulness Workshop! This program, developed by Dr. Elissa Rubin and Cory Muscara (Owner/Founder of the Long Island Center for Mindfulness) is designed for children from 6-11 years of age. This course is designed to equip children with the inner resources they need to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and improve focus, joy, creativity and relaxation. This is one of the only kids mindfulness courses available on Long Island, and is often a transformational experience for participants.
We are limiting attendance to 15 children per session. If you are interested, we encourage you to call for more information or register asap to guarantee a spot.
Dates: This is a six week course: Sept. 21st, 28th, Oct. 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th
Day and Time: - Thursday evenings, 5:30PM-6:30PM Class runs approx. 45 - 55 minutes with the remaining time for parent engagement and questions.
The extent of pressures put on our children today is far greater than ever before. From increased scholastic expectations from an extremely young age, to increased social responsibility our children are faced with a daunting challenge. Combine that with the ever increasing distractions that technology provides (gaming, social media, general connection) we as parents struggle to develop skills to help our children not just excel, but to be functioning, at ease and simply happy.
As a result, we have developed our Mindfulness for Children program. This collaboration combines proven techniques from established Mindfulness curriculums as well as experience and perspective from pediatric medicine. All designed for appropriate age groups to be fun and engaging!

The Role of the Parents/Guardian
It is incredibly important for you, as a parent or guardian, to be a part of this experience with your child. Therefore, we ask at least one guardian to be present during the class. Although the learning period will only involve interaction with the kids, it is important for you to see what tools/ideas the children are learning to support and encourage them between sessions.
