Synthesizing over two decades of Dr. Beth Reese’s work bringing practical, research-based self-regulation tools from mindfulness and yoga on and off the mat into daily life, this podcast shares stories and ideas for integrating techniques into homes, classrooms, schools, and beyond. When Dr. Beth Reese’s then 6-year-old daughter started hurling chairs at her in a busy airport, she knew something was up. Soon after, she learned that her daughter had sensory processing disorder, considered by many to be a spectrum disorder. Realizing that what Beth was learning on her yoga mat could help her daughter “off the mat”, she founded Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® in 2008. As for Dr. Reese’s once chair-hurling daughter, she is now an award-winning filmmaker in UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television.
