How does it help?

Meaningful movement and meditation help increase a deeper connection inwards (introspection skills), memory/concentration and spatial orientation while simultaneously decreasing stress and anxiety. Individuals improve their coordination, mobility and balance all while improving fine and gross motor skills. 

Sessions teach self regulation skills which ultimately increases independence! 

Through mentorship, we explore communication and healthy boundaries in every session. Sessions can be used to discuss current difficulties and navigate life to help improve their quality of life! 

Overall, sessions increase autonomy by offering individuals healthy ways of expressing themselves and their needs.
