Play is Healing: A Mindful Recess



Play is Healing: A Mindful Recess

The first phase of Play is Healing is A Mindful Recess which is a pre-recorded class series developed and taught by MHA’s Director of Wellness Rachael Haas. This 8-week series is broken into accessible intervals to boost brain and body health. Included in the sessions are mindfulness and fitness movements for calming and focus, balance and coordination, strength and flexibility, and finishing with gratitude while refocusing back on learning. Geared towards elementary school children – whether in the classroom or virtual – we hope to reach as many students throughout the county with your help. The videos can be shared and used according to teachers’ and parents’ schedules.

Each week will be filmed at the Above and Beyond Children’s Museum throughout different exhibits as well as the different areas within the YMCA to spark curiosity and community connection. Videos will be saved on the partnering organizations’ YouTube channels and weekly emails will be sent out to share the week’s lesson as well as corresponding resources. The program runs the weeks of February 22-April 12.
