The family that breathes, plays, learns and gives back together is better able to just be. Our service learning programs and workshops engage the entire family – littles and bigs alike. Projects are hosted in community spaces or at our nonprofit partner sites, run one to two hours and include education, movement, art and the service project itself. Workshops focus on different themes, like compassion, kindness, mindfulness or inclusion and are customizable for your community or group. Our service learning programs are a wonderful way to mindfully connect as a family while caring for your community.
Service Learning Projects
Each of our service learning projects directly benefits a particular nonprofit. We’ve gathered and sorted toys for children in need, visited and cared for service animals, cooked meals for those who are hungry, assembled hygiene kits for the homeless and peace kits for veterans and communities recovering from trauma. Every project incorporates child-friendly education around the need, yoga and movement, creativity and mindfulness.
We offer both customizable and ongoing workshops around themes like compassion, kindness and inclusion. We’ll work with your community to create a unique family program that highlights a particular value or teaching, like courage or resiliency. Ongoing workshops include the Kindness Book Club and Mindful STEM projects.
Private Family Mindfulness & Yoga Classes
We also offer small group yoga and mindfulness practices for individual or extended families. Private yoga and mindfulness sessions are often helpful for families coping with loss, grief or illness and are available in both private homes or community spaces. Please contact us for more information.
Self-Care for Bigs
We recognize how demanding parenting and caregiving can be as we meet all that life brings us. We also know we can’t have mindful littles without mindful bigs. That’s why we offer resources to support the compassionate hearts of bigs just as we nurture the innate kindness and light in our littles. We encourage you to participate in our programs alongside your little and take a look at our digital resources, including book and video recommendations, mindful parenting tips, inspirational stories and other restorative ways we can each feed our inner spark.
