Passport to Mindfulness

An Adventure for Kids and the Adults: How to integrate mind, body and spirit into our everyday lives.

Join teachers/authors/adventurers Jason Gruhl, Lauren Moon and Drew Jared Irwin for an immersive experience of how to cultivate childhoodmindfulness and presence. Through fun and engaging activities, we will experience yoga, explore connection to self and others, sense our senses, and find our voices. We will help children synthesize the day’s activities and devise strategies for bringing what they’ve learned out into the world. Parents and guardians will delve into tools to integrate mindfulness into their parenting style. This Adventure is geared towards children ages 7-10 and the adults in their lives.

This Adventure is geared towards children ages 7-9 and the adults in their lives. Every child must be accompanied by one adult.

She is a yoga nanny, children’s yoga teacher, acroyoga instructor, and children’s mindfulness coach. She has dedicated her life to educating children and she wouldn’t have it any other way! Lauren fell in love with her physical body through movement and play in the form of AcroYoga. She hopes to encourage us all to realize our inner strength and compassion for others and ourselves through the art of movement, play, and yoga. Laurens’ passion is to teach both adults and children the powerful existence one can have while living in the present moment. As we all know, playfulness and living life through a ‘child’s eye’ is something adults commonly forget. Her goal is to create a new wave of mindful leaders, starting with our youth.
