The First Annual Mindful Kids Yogathon Comes to Worcester

Wednesday, April 02, 2014


The first annual Mindful Kids Yogathon will be held at the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester from 9am-5pm on Saturday, April 5 at 65 Tainter Street.

Join the “young at heart, mind and spirit” for a day of FUNraising for the whole family. Through multicultural programs and workshops, participants will have a chance to learn different yoga styles from around the globe. Featured fun will include games, music, art, food and entertainment.

The event will feature world-renowned leaders in yoga and mindfulness such as Debbie Cohen, Founder of Core Yoga (Boston), Harvard University’s leading yoga instructor and the force that brought yoga into Boston Public Schools and John de Kadt, a world percussionist, poet, and storyteller, who specializes in the fusion of inspirational poetry drumming with yoga, song, and dance.

Fitchburg Mayor, Lisa Wong is the Event Chair for the Yogathon. “Practicing mindfulness is a tool that is available to each person, regardless of their economic and personal circumstances, and research shows that it can help reduce challenging problems from stress to violence,” said Mayor Wong. “Every child has so much ability and can have limitless confidence and imagination. Lets build their self-confidence and see what they can do. Yoga is a great tool. The Yogathon is meant to introduce and reaffirm mindful principles to children and families, and raise awareness in our communities about the benefits of raising mindful children.”

This is the main event in Ivy Child International’s “Children Helping Children Campaign”. The campaign is aimed at educating and encouraging children to support their peers and other children in need, who may not have the same opportunities or access to Ivy Child’s mindfulness-based learning programs. All event and campaign proceeds will directly support children and youth through Ivy Child’s mindfulness-based, health education programs.

Pre-register today to secure your spot at the Mindful Kids Yogathon! For more information, please contact Shan Koay at [email protected].
