Anchored Minds & Bodies collaborated with Middle Earth, a non-profit agency providing services to teens and adolescents in Somerset County, for a Senior Boot Camp this Summer.  The camp was for rising Seniors to help prepare them for the challenges of senior year.  AM&B provided a class in "Mindfulness Basic Training" for the students to help them feel more empowered and able to manage the many stressors they are currently facing (grades, tests, college applications, jobs, family, friends, etc.).  For more information about the programs at Middle Earth, visit their website: www.middleearthnj.org

Anchored Minds & Bodies collaborated with Passages 2 Wellness and Mindful Kids in Madison, NJ to offer a Yoga and Mindfulness Kids Camp (at the Madison Community House) for children, grades 1-5, in the community. The children spent 2 hours each day learning fun and engaging (age appropriate) mindful lessons, such as: Mindful Bodies, Mindful Listening, Mindful Movement, Mindful Eating, and Kindness.   The camp received rave reviews; one child stating:  "This was the best camp I did all Summer!"  Look for this camp opportunity, again, next Summer!

Anchored Minds & Bodies provided a Teacher In-Service at Stellar Academy in Hillsboroughto share the benefits of Mindfulness for teachers in combating teacher "Burn-out" and in becoming more engaged and present when working with young children.  Teachers were shown useful tools and practices to incorporate into their work/home routines..an excellent source for teacher's professional development workshops.

Mental Training program for Swimmers at the JCC Swimteam in Bridgewater, NJ (Senior Swimmers Summer Session); well received.
