Mindful Families is a well established  family-based program with a unique holistic integrative mindfulness perspective for children of all ages and their families.

Mindful Families is a unique program … the only one is Western New York and is free to all in our community.

Each session has a theme: gratitude, kindness, sensory awareness, respect for others, self-care and encompass family yoga, mini-meditation, storytime, cooperative play, a theme -related craft project, and preparing and eating a healthy snack.

The hour and a half program stimulates a very calming environment for parents and child with each enjoying the benefits of positive social interaction with the other members of the group.

In addition to yoga, crafts based on a mindfulness theme, healthy snacks are offered, often cooked, baked, presented or created by the children

Outdoor activities are included as often as weather permits. Often, we walk together on silent sensory “listening “ walks on our Windfall gardens nature trail.

This provides an opportunity to be in nature in a very simple, accessible way. The fresh air and the beauty of our property can be appreciated by folks who don’t have that opportunity elsewhere.
