A Lifeboat and a Compass: Yoga and Stories to Help Youth and Families Heal in Kids Yoga Therapy

IslamMandala3Over the years, numerous therapists have studied with me to learn the method of Storytime Yoga. They recognized the value of storytelling to help children heal mind and body.

 In the ritual of Storytime Yoga, children connect mind and body to the environment. Over the years I have noticed and heard from others how Storytime Yoga has assisted children in becoming  more physically, mentally and emotionally healthy, using the reflective process of storytelling and the mind/body focus of yoga.

My own journey of story and yoga infuses this work in dealing with trauma from childhood abuse, the suicides of my late husband and youngest sister, and to overcome ADHD and chronic depression. Yoga and storytelling have helped my two children overcome the loss of their father and cope with the stresses of the world.
