Energy is the ability to do work. Emotion is energy in motion. When we experience a feeling or trauma, it becomes stored in the body. Without expressing the feeling through movement and sound, it is redirected in the body causing physical pain, tension, or tightness. We know that children cannot learn in fight or flight. Yoga and mindfulness are effective tools to help children move from the amygdala and access executive functioning skills. Now more than ever it is important to support children’s emotional health and development.
