The Playground GR brings play to listeners around the world. We are thrilled to have Zoe Gates join us as we explore the benefits of meditations and yoga. Zoe is a licensed Master Social Worker, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and a children's yoga instructor. She and her husband have two incredible children; a five-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son. She worked in foster care as a children's therapist from 2011-2017. After earning her children's yoga certification in 2019, she saw a clear connection between the mindfulness exercises used in children's yoga and the interventions used as a clinician. As a therapist, she's seen the role social-emotional development plays in helping children become successful in their classrooms, in their families, and with themselves. Zoe shared, "Immediately I knew I wanted to build something valuable for children; Something to enrich their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I wanted to bring these skills into their classrooms and into their homes- the places their development constantly occurs. It is truly my honor and privilege to work with children and give them the skills they need to bloom."
Join us in learning, and practicing mindfulness. #theplaygroundgr #play4thehealthofit
