With love and acceptance from adults around them, children dissolve trauma through release, movement, and heart connection. By responding to all experiences as an opportunity to heal, adults keep the channels open for children to find their way of healing themselves. To maintain love and acceptance for your child, we can nurture ourselves regularly and bravely, clearing away our own emotional congestion. All children yearn for love and acceptance, including the child in us.

Learning from the Heart is a place for children and families to grow together as they experience ways of using the brain more efficiently, and discover ways of dealing with stress.
Reading, writing, math, spelling, and handwriting are improved through exercises that open up pathways in the brain. Although this is a great experience for children with dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia, and autism, it can be beneficial for anyone who understands the value of movement. Students, who are already doing well academically, learn how to apply themselves more efficiently in school.
Learning how to deal with stress is addressed in Learning from the Heart, through Kundalini Yoga, meditation, and reflex integration. Tools, developed and added to over the years by children and parents, are passed onto families who want to practice these techniques at home.
- attachment issues
- breathing difficulties
- elective mutism
- fear in groups of people
- immune system that is weak
- learning challenges
- math (techniques for learning multiplication math facts addressed)
- motion sickness
- numbness, or a sense of isolation
- reading (foundational skills addressed)
- sensory overload (sounds, lights, smells, tight clothing etc…)
- sitting still
Although Learning from the Heart is continually contributed to by professionals who work with young people, it has always been the ideas of young people that other young people gravitate toward most.
This grassroots, holistic approach started the summer of 2010, and is currently being offered through the YMCA in Westborough, MA and Yoga at the Ashram in Millis, MA.
The parts of the brain needed for reading success are not fully developed until between the ages of seven and nine for most children. Many children will do what is asked of them by the adults they trust and want to please, even if it does not resonate with them. When they are engaged in reading at a time when they are not developmentally ready, academic, behavioral, and emotional problems can be created.
Read Write from the Heart combines movements with reading exercises to integrate reflexes. When certain reflexes are activated, emotional congestion from the past comes to the surface to heal. In a fun, light, and respectful way, Reading from the Heart inspires parents, caregivers, and professionals to be open hearted with children as they open up to their own wisdom.
Read Write from the Heart is a complete reading program that can be successfully used by a parent at home or a professional working with children. Please contact Sat Nam Kaur to learn more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
