At PLAY, we help cultivate mindfulness through the integrated application of art and yoga. We offer in-depth support and evidence-based teaching to youth and the parents and professionals who support them. PLAY’s unique curriculum is gentle and effective, helping cultivate a stronger mind-body connection and empowering students to apply mindfulness in their daily life.

The PLAY Way to Greater Joy and Peace

PLAYs innovative programs focus on improving outcomes in these three key areas:

Self Awareness

Greater self-awareness empowers youth to make changes and build on strengths, as well as identifying areas where they would like to make improvements.

Strength

The PLAY program increases strength and flexibility, calms the nervous system, and enhances focus and present-moment awareness.

Mind-Body Connection

Mindfulness Matters

Scientific evidence shows that mindfulness and related interventions can improve the mental, emotional, social, and physical health and well-being of young people.  It has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, reactivity, and problematic behavior, and bring about greater calmness, relaxation, the ability to manage behavior and emotions, self-awareness, and empathy.  

Evidence for the Impact of Mindfulness on Children and Young People
