“Life is a balance between holding on and letting go.”
In times of change, transformation, or transition, it’s important to remember that we are still ourselves. In “The Affirmation Song,” we employ a series of mantras to remind children of their abilities, their uniqueness, and their belonging.
Saying, “I am powerful, I am strong, I shine my light, I belong” can provide support and comfort.
Using a series of yoga poses in conjunction with these affirmations helps with retention, stress relief and more.
Additionally, transformation can be an internal process. Knowing that we can change provides comfort and self-awareness. We don’t have to live in a fixed mindset. We wrote “Change My Mind” to let children know that it’s okay to make those mental shifts.
“Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise so I am changing myself.”
We hope you enjoy singing these songs together - and happy summertime!!
