Today our children are presented with challenges that can be difficult for them to navigate. One of the goals at Lunges ‘n Lattes is to use these classes to arm them with tools they can use in everyday life, and classes are designed to use lots of creativity and imagination to practice their skills. Each class is approached with the child in mind and the instructors look at the child as a whole in mind, body, and individuality, and each class incorporates a time for them to practice mindfulness, in hopes that it will carry over to situations they are faced with.
