The pandemic has been hard on our families and especially our youth. AIKI offered virtual meditation workshops for Mama Vickie Casanova's After School Matters program.
This summer we were able to provide virtual meditation for about 30 youth through a partnership with Vickie Cassanova and her After School Matters program. This was the second time that AIKI provided meditation and mindfulness training for the young people. In 2019, AIKI was invited to work with the dance program to provide youth with an alternative outlet and tools to deal with stress and anxiety.
Young people from the program enjoyed learning about meditation and yoga and many now use it as part of their practice.
