A Proactive Approach to Children’s Health
You know the kinds of challenges children face today: obesity and diabetes, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, anxiety, not to mention the chronic stress that can undermine health.
With limited time, it’s often all you can do to address immediate problems. Wouldn’t it be great if you could give your young clients a broader set of tools and strategies to support their health? Activities they could use at home?
Many counselors, psychologists, therapists, nurses, physicians, and other health professionals do just that with Yoga Calm.
A unique blend of physical yoga and mindfulness activities that nurture health and social-emotional skills, Yoga Calm can be easily integrated into your work to provide big benefits in little time – even just 5 minutes per session.
Yoga Calm helps kids develop physical fitness, emotional intelligence, and healthy habits for a lifetime. It promotes sensory integration and nervous system regulation. It fosters resilience, focus, trust and pro-social skills such as communication and cooperation that are at the root of effective therapeutic practice.
Yoga Calm can be taught one-on-one or in group settings. Practitioners report that its body-based activities help kids get into process faster and offer ample skills practice. More, it’s a set of strategies and tools they can give students and clients to use at home – and which many use themselves as an effective way to deal with the stress of their profession.
Embraced by such notable institutions as the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, Yoga Calm’s principles-based approach is a useful complement to your standard practice, helping you take a proactive approach to children’s health.

Made Me a Better Therapist
Yoga Calm has made me a better therapist. Its techniques and tools are consistent with the psychotherapy and play therapy models that guide my work. Children feel more in control – and so do parents, who love leaving my office with tools they can employ right away! Where others see deficits, Yoga Calm honors the innate wisdom of children and builds on their strengths.
The Best Antidote
Yoga Calm is the best antidote I can think of for over-programmed, fast-moving, plugged-in lives. In a culture quick to tell kids that more is better and that entitlement is deserved, Yoga Calm provides a still, centered space from which to breathe.
OT Strategies That Really Work!
Yoga Calm is the most meaningful and results-producing approach I have used in my 35+ years as an OT – and a great way to provide Response To Intervention (RTI) support. Through Yoga Calm, students learn how to hear the messages their body is giving them, know what to do with them and implement strategies to maximize academic achievement. It’s exciting to be able share strategies that really work!
With adolescent’s energy and internal strife, Yoga Calm has complemented our CBT by helping them learn emotional regulation through a physical sense – listening and becoming more aware of their bodies.
