Let’s Meet Blissful Kids

Our Intention

We believe in the intimate interconnectedness of the mind, body, and breath. We are dedicated to empowering children, parents, caregivers, and teachers. We aim to teach our community how to develop a sense of peace, how to nurture self-love, and cultivate a true connection with their heart space.

Holistic Living

Our vision to see our community living a holistic life is all about living from the heart center, we love the connection to self that one finds in Yoga, breathwork, and mindfulness and we also love the joy that is found in creative practices like process art and storytelling.

Yoga, Mindfulness & Art

These beautiful practices help one to connect to something bigger, a process that flows, heals, relaxes, and releases. Find a connection to your body through yoga, and learn to accept and love yourself just as you are. Lighten your mind and mood with mindfulness. Expand your creativity through process Art.

Retreats

On our retreats, we aim to create an environment for families to spend quality time together.

Energy Healing

During our energy healing sessions, we hold a loving space for children to expand, grow and feel safe. In this space. Using a combination of Reiki and other modalities to assist the body in releasing toxins, decrease stress, and increased physical and emotional wellness. balance emotions, connect to self and others, and encourage creative expression.

Why Yoga, Mindfulness & Process Art?

Yoga is the union of the body mind and emotions, through this connection students become more in touch with themselves, their loved ones, and the planet. When we teach children how to respect and love their bodies, how to use their minds as positive tools, and how to connect with their emotions, we are teaching them the fundamentals of being a peaceful and happy person. Self-love grows self-care and respect, which in turn creates care for others and the planet.

Mindfulness involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.

In the practice of Process Art, a child is not just making something, they are enhancing their physical and emotional development, building their confidence and decision-making skills and they are adding value to their communication skills by having a space that allows for their creative expression.

We believe that if you are surrounded by children you have the vitally important role of guiding and supporting them to become the very best version of themselves that they can be.
