Live happy! Come curious! Leave empowered!

Join Dee DiGioia, your mindfulness coach, for this workshop series specifically designed for pre-teens and teens (targeted towards grades 5 – 8).

Discover how to positively impact your relationships and challenges in daily life at home and school with skill and confidence! Learn the science and psychology of stress and emotions and discover your inner resources for feeling more in control, reducing stress, and experiencing more balance, peace and happiness. Explore your inner world of thoughts, emotions and attitudes through:

  • Creative Arts
  • Games
  • Relaxation practices
  • Mindful awareness training
  • Movement
  • Yoga
  • Journaling

In an increasingly disconnected world, our in-class group experience helps participants know they are not alone in their struggles with the pressures of life as a teen, while offering gentle support and opportunities to address personal challenges and questions.

“I wanted to say thank you for a great class today. It was definitely my favorite so far… so many things I didn’t notice before and, with the lessons learned today, I will strive to improve my character. I especially loved the video about perspective and appreciating everyone around us, as well as things that we often take for granted, like the skies or plants, etc. Really makes you think. I’m so glad to have taken this class, because it’s making me see things so differently than before: it’s wonderful! So thanks for that…Look forward to seeing you next session!” Your mindful student, CM (high school)

Teen YOUniversity programs are ideal for teens who may have social anxiety and have difficulty entering an unfamiliar environment, as well as teens who may be “highly sensitive”, “shy”, anxious, easily overwhelmed, and/or tentative or reluctant to speak up in a group setting.  I’m excited to help your teen find the tools to bloom in peace and confidence and feel more freedom in daily living! This class is designed to intentionally create a space where your teen feels safe to discover his/her inner superpowers and the courage to try them out!  This class has the potential to provide new life-skills for teens with the above traits, but these are often the ones who will resist and come up with reasons for not going! Parents often submit thinking they are doing well to not “push” their teen into something uncomfortable, however, avoidance only increases anxiety!! The key to overcoming avoidance behaviors is to continue to slowly face what is being avoided, with assistance from a supportive adult (me!), until it no longer has such a negative hold on your teen. We’ll gently create some new positive memories in a small, welcoming, and positive group environment!  I teach the skills I wish I learned while growing up with anxiety! Here is an excellent article: Anxiety in Kids and Teens: Why Anxiety Triggers Often Don’t Make Sense – And How to Turn Avoidance into Brave Behaviour. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or need help with this. If needed, we can do some Personal Coaching prior to, or in conjunction with, taking this class.

The symbolism of the dragonfly aligns with the intentions of Mindful Kindful YOUniversity. The dragonfly is often associated with transformation, wisdom, adaptability, resilience, and power. The dragonfly begins its life submerged under water as a nymph and endures many obstacles and challenges before emerging as the revered and beautiful dragonfly. As we shed any negative or unskillful patterns of limiting thoughts, behaviors, and habits, then we are growing our “wings” and are empowered to experience a whole new way of living in happiness, health, wisdom, and well-being. This is our true nature. May you be Mindful * Kindful * Peaceful * Skillful!
