Chakras are a core belief of yoga, the major chakras are located along the spinal column of the body - starting at your perineum and going to the top of your head at your crown. Each chakra is traditionally represented by a different color of the rainbow - starting with red at the bottom up to violet on the crown. Each chakra location represents different emotions and feelings. Ideally all the chakras should be balanced-open and spinning at a similar rate to each other. Most of us however have some chakras which are overactive and others that are closed down or underactive. We will use Asana to balance and open Chakras, Essential Oils, Music, take home exercise with matras and mudras.

An Internet Safety Program Educate, engage and empower children and youth to prevent victimization and increase self confidence when online. As the internet has become an integral part of our daily lives, many children are ill-equipped to protect themselves online. Approximately one out of seven young people who use the Internet regularly were exposed to unwanted sexual solicitation or approaches and one out of three encountered unwanted pornography. With that in mind, more needs to be done to educate the nation’s children about the risks they face online. This program is relevant and important to all parents and other adults who interact with youth that use computers. It’s a great compliment to the 7th grade DARE program as well.

RED FLAGS - CONCERNS: • Loss of skills at any point in development • Any significant accidents, traumas or illnesses • Pregnancy or delivery complications • Lack of social awareness or responses to others • Low or high muscle tone (tight, floppy, loose) • Unsafe activity level • Extreme irritability • Extremely low arousal reactions (underactivity)

arly Childhood Screening 952-226-0975

The early childhood years, from birth to the start of kindergarten, are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early Childhood Screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is doing at age three to four. The screening process identifies, at an early age, possible health or learning concerns so children can get help before starting school. All children need to be screened before enrolling in kindergarten. If your child is of screening age and you’d like to schedule an appointment, or if you are conscientiously opposed to screening, please contact our office.
