Dr. Alina Olteanu, a Chopra Center-certified meditation instructor and owner of Whole Child Texas pediatrics, in Frisco, is offering a primordial sound meditation course for both children and parents. Evening and weekend classes are available. Participants can learn how to meditate in one session that lasts approximately one hour and join a like-minded community once a month for group meditations.
According to Olteanu, meditation brings many health benefits for children, empowering them to manage their stress, emotions, anxiety and inattention. She says, “When parents meditate with their children, the entire family benefits, too.” Meditation is not part of a religious belief, it is more like an workout for the brain. Children as young as 6 or 7 years old can learn how to meditate.
“We focus a lot on diet and exercise, but sometimes forget that stress management is equally or even more important. These days, children are under a lot of stress, even at a young age. By teaching them about meditation, the perfect antidote to stress, we give them a very precious gift that they can use for the rest of their lives.”
Cost is $150. Location: 3550 Parkwood Blvd., Ste. B-100, Frisco. For more information, call 214-736-1954 or visit WholeChildTexas.com.
