Halton Sahaja Yoga Meditation group had been contacted by Darlene, the Family Engagement Coordinator from Halton Families for Families organization to offer a program that restores balance and introduces meditation to participants that are facing mental health problems (especially with their children or youth), or other disturbances in their lives. It was indeed a very special evening for us, and we are humbly sharing the joy of knowing this sister organization in Halton, with some photos and collected feedback. We hope the article captures the successful social evening at The Roxy in Acton, Halton.
Christopher (Age 13) : “I really enjoyed this. It was the most calm and relaxing thing I have ever done! Thank you.”; “My teacher needs it”; “My mom needs it; I want to meditate more, I think I will meditate in the car”.
Carys (Age 5): “I’ve felt calm; I’ve enjoyed it.”
Brooke (Age 11) : “I LOVED IT!!”
Cheyenne Purdy (Age 10): “I Loved this class”
Gavin (Age 7): “Relaxing”
Freeing, Renewed, Lighter,
I don’t know how to thank you enough,
I want to join the class in Milton,
I will definitely join the Oakville class,
My kids have ADHD and usually cannot stay still for 2 min and I cannot believe it how they sat in the class and loved it.
Note: this simple, easy, natural (as per its Sanskrit name, ‘sahaja‘) form of yoga meditation that we practice and teach for free, it is truly effective and beneficial for children, youth and adults alike. We share down below few videos where research was done with Sahaja Yoga meditation for children with ADHD.
Note: The children from Halton Families for Families, after participating to our full fledged meditation class with energy balancing techniques workshop, had asked themselves to be in the photos with our volunteer team so we could not have not even 1 photo “alone”.
We’ve felt honored to be part of the October Family night social and we are very thankful for this opportunity of contributing to our Halton community. Hope to meet you all again, soon and looking forward to continue our ‘Run for Inspiration’ while ‘Being and Feeling at Peace and Self-Realized’, working together to promote and achieve optimal mental health in kids and families.
