Kid, Teen, and Family Programs
Building skills as a family and as part of a community.
What would it look like if your entire family, together, was on the path of actively learning critical life skills like awareness, presence, equanimity, and kindness?
What would it be like to be part of a community of families with the very same goals?
PRACTICE San Francisco is here to find out.
Our full kid/family schedule is on pause for the summer and will resume in the fall!
For the Whole Family:
Breathwork for Kids & Parents
with Nina Kaiser, PhD.
Thursday, December 13th, 4-5:30 PM
Our breath is the one tool that we always have with us– the superpower that we have in our own bodies! Join PRACTICE founder Dr. Nina Kaiser for a 90 minute workshop for kids in 3rd to 5th grades and their parents! Come relax, reset, and connect with your child as you learn about what happens in our bodies and brains when we are under stress or experiencing big emotions, and experiment with and practice different breathing strategies that can help!
Please note that a parent is required to attend this workshop with their child. Cost is $65 per parent-child pair; registration includes a child-size Practice x BigTruck hat.
If your child has attended our Mighty Minds program, please note that some (although not all) of the content of this workshop may be review for your child.
Family Mindfulness Series
with Alexandra Rossi
This course is designed to assist parents, caregivers, kids, and children in learning how to use their own internal resources to respond more skillfully to stress and promoting healthy living skills.
Participants will learn and practice mindfulness skills based on the senses, breath, and emotions, as well as mindfulness and relaxation activities adapted to everyday living.

For Kids & Teens:
Give your child the gift of learning research-supported behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness strategies proven to be effective in reducing and/or preventing stress, anxiety, and negative mood… before your child may really need them later in life.
Mighty Minds groups introduce kids to mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral strategies helpful in effectively managing anxiety, stress, anger/frustration, and other emotions. Through fun experiential activities, kids learn the kind of life skills that support resilience, compassion, persistence, and self-awareness.
