The Mindful Family
Parenting young children can be challenging as well joyful. Join Leah Fietsam and come together as a family and learn ways to simply pause, breathe and be. Learn how to bring greater kindness and presence into family life with basic mindfulness techniques. This workshop will share activities and tips for bringing mindfulness into the heart of family life. Using simple breath techniques and yoga stretches, families will learn practical strategies for increasing ease and decreasing anxiety. In this workshop you will gain family strategies for building greater awareness, focused attention and compassionate action. Learn techniques to start a mindfulness practice and cultivate a mindful environment. (Designed for families with preschool through tweens.)

Leah started practicing yoga 10 years ago as a complement to running and was compelled by the learning curve as there was always something new to discover and explore. When I am not practicing yoga, I spend time with my family and love to golf and run.
