What a day at the First National Kids Yoga Conference! Such awesomeness filled with learning, sharing, connecting and fun.
Pile of Smile was there as a vendor and got to witness firsthand what some amazing and inspiring presenters and attendees are doing to spread the practice of yoga to children around the nation.
The first of it's kind, this conference had a vision to implement positive change in our schools and communities for children through a shared passion for the kids yoga movement. The conference was made up of yoga teachers, moms and community leaders from all around the country who got together in a playful way to collaborate and share ideas.
The conference itself consisted of keynote lectures, group exercises, breakout workshops, and panel discussions and also had yoga based activities designed just for kids and teens.
Pile of Smile was honored to be present at the event to help spread our mission to help children with terminal cancer by creating a wish fund generated by donations of kids artwork.
We drew a lot of attention with the amazing artwork and handmade wishbone earrings we had on display. We are committed to teaching children compassion and the importance of mindfulness at an early age and we will continue to spread the word about our charity organization at like minded events in the future!
