MAY Kids Transform empowers
youth and educators through
Mindfulness, Art and Yoga.
The program teaches applicable tools to foster self-awareness and emotional intelligence, to enhance daily experience and quality of life.
Mindfulness is the nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness develops the understanding and management of one's mind through awareness of the breath, body, environment, thoughts, and emotions. These practices have been shown to improve attention, emotional intelligence, compassion, and empathy in all. MAY is a full semester curriculum for youth with applicable tools to prepare for life challenges, our curriculum was created by the collaboration of great minds of yogis, artists, youth therapists, educators, and the youth it self.
Creative projects— murals, drawing, painting, journaling, music, and poetry— give young people a method of self-exploration and self-expression. Collective projects and sharing their creativity fosters community and connection. Through art, we learn in a concrete, visceral way that we are creators of our own lives.
Through a combination of yoga postures and breathwork, young people become stronger, more flexible, and more balanced. By learning how to manage the breath, they connect their mind and body to create a sense of wellbeing. These practices reduce stress and anxiety and increase a sense of control and health.
MAY Kids Transform combines mindfulness, art and yoga as tools for youth to self-reflect, manage emotions, develop emotional intelligence, self awareness,
de-stress, and develop community.
