I’ve been hearing that children everywhere are showing signs of dysregulation. Some people say it’s due to increased technology use and busy schedules. Does this sound familiar?

Yoga and associated teaching of mindfulness help children calm down and focus in their classrooms.

There are several benefits of yoga for students:

  • increases strength and flexibility
  • helps them relax, unwind, and calm down to reduce stress and anxiety
  • helps them sleep better
  • promotes interaction between adult and child, as well as between multiple children
  • improves their motor skills, as well as their coordination
  • develops self-confidence, self-expression, and body awareness
  • promotes a healthy, active lifestyle

Taught by Clive Woodhouse, affectionately known as Dr./Mr. Minecraft by many of his current students.  He has practiced yoga on and off for over 20 years.

Emphasis is placed on joyful and engaging activities that will encourage students to explore yoga as they continue to grow.

Elaine_Woodhouse_300Originally from England, Elaine trained in Early Childhood Education, and Fine and Applied Art, before moving to the United States in 1982. Since then she has acquired over 20 years of teaching experience, including several years in the Head Start Program. The majority of her experience however has been providing after school art enrichment classes at Seattle Public Schools.

She has also been retained as an Artist in Residence,

Elaine’s interest in folk art led to authoring a book on metal repujado, and several television appearances. She is responsible for developing and popularizing metal embossing techniques and products in the crafting industry.

Elaine has also received certification as a social worker, specializing in child care. Most recently she completed training as a sign language interpreter.

“Traditionally, folk art was created by people who did not even have a word for art in their culture. Art was simply what people did. It was a part of being human. My classes foster this philosophy in a contemporary setting. Folk art often has a practical purpose or meets a specific need. Many of my classes utilize found objects and recycling, reflecting our society’s need to conserve and repurpose”
