Carol Rose is a NYS licensed Speech and Language Pathologist. She has worked in this field for over 30 years, having had the honor of teaching children from birth to high school with a variety of abilities. Her passion has always been to help each individual child find “their voice”, foster confidence, and believe in their self-worth. Each one has a unique gift to share.

She has been practicing yoga since 2006 and fell in love with what it offered.  Carol trained with Sarah Herrington of Om Schooled, is a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner having studied under Bridgette Shea, and most recently has trained under Dr. Ann Saffi-Biasetti for Restorative Yoga. She has completed Level 1 and is currently finishing her Level 2 work. Carol was also fortunate to complete an 8 week program of Mindful Self Compassion with Ann. In addition, she has taken the Mindful Educator Essentials program through Mindful Schools.

A worldwide traveler inspired by her loving and adventurous husband, mother of two beautiful grown children and now welcoming a new grandchild, Carol is hoping to share some “tools” that will nurture and foster compassion, confidence, and appreciation for oneself and others.

More than just a game: Yoga for school-age children

*Yoga is becoming increasingly popular among American children. A national survey found that 3% of U.S. children (1.7 million) did yoga as of 2012 — that’s 400,000 more children than in 2007.

*Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children (ages 6 to 12).

*Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children.

*Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well.

*A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.

Emerging research studies also suggest that yoga can help children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by improving the core symptoms of ADHD, including inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. It can also boost school performance in children with ADHD. A growing number of schools now integrate yoga and mindfulness into physical education programs or classroom curriculums, and many yoga studios offer classes for school-age children. Yoga can be playful and interactive for parents and children at home, as well.

Namaste is limiting this 4 week workshop to 8 students, so we can give each child the attention they deserve.  Please call with any questions: Susan (518) 222 7470
