Through the practice of Synergy we look to create a healthy environment for children that will evoke playfulness, trust and communication. This practice surpasses its obvious benefits for a healthy human body. It does so in a manner that is playful and is very welcomed by all kids. Kids are explorers. By providing safety as well as freedom we stimulate learning.
Synergy teachers, have been sharing this practice with kids in communities in shanti towns in Peru to public schools in Aspen Colorado. Kids from all backgrounds have the same wish to experience healthy joy and that is what this practice evokes and nurtures.
Frauke, Synergy Kids Program Manager - ' My heart melts when I see children. Their openness, truth, wisdom, laughter, activeness and liveliness. The interaction with kids by teaching them Synergy is to give them a way to express their physical energy by crazy acrobatics, to calm them down by nice little yoga posture stories and to show them how to touch gently by massaging. I'm so excited to work on this book and the Synergy Kids Program.'.
