HSY for Kids and Parents

HSY for Kids & Parents is a resource for families interested in introducing spiritual yoga into their daily life.  Introducing mindfulness and meditation to children at a young age can help build resilience, awareness and a stronger connection to their own inner source of calm.

Our goal is to inform parents and caretakers on how to help children become one with the finer qualities such as joy, inner peace, beauty, patience and kindness.

Ultimately, we believe this will help keep children focused and calm during times of adversity, and helps them be open to change. It frees them from emotions that block them from moving forward. We believe when the Higher Self is activated, creativity, inspiration, intuition, and expression ignite. Connecting to the heart facilitates the connection to the Wise Being within. When we speak about connecting to the heart, we are not referring to the physical heart, but the heart chakra that contains inspiration, joy and wisdom. This section offers practices that will help children achieve such connections. Please join us in this exploration. We welcome your comments, questions, reviews. — Petal Steele, HSY Parents & Kids Editor

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate." - CC Jung Imitation is a natural and potent force, and as parents, it's important  to recognize that we may not always be conscious of whom we imitate and what we project.  When our children are babies we naturally mirror their expressions, movements, and coos to nurture the bonding process.
