KARMA KIDS YOGA
THURSDAY 9TH NOVEMBER 10AM
Beth Borowsky is Founder and CEO of KarmaKIdsYoga, a program dedicated to offering kids yoga in preschools across greater Sydney. With a Masters in Early Childhood and Montessori Preschool teaching, and over 1000 hours of Yoga training including kids yoga, adult yoga, pre-natal yoga, yoga therapy, and meditation, Beth has created a kids yoga program that nurtures strength, flexibility and mindfulness. She is also the mother of two girls who are now 16 and 20!
In today's busy world, where both parents and children are feeling more stressed and anxious, introducing kids yoga and its many gifts cultivates essential wellbeing tools that young children can carry throughout their life. Beth loves how children get to explore and understand the magic of their deep breath as they build muscular strength and flexibility while developing coordination, balance and an awareness of good posture.
Through meditation, mindfulness and visualisation experiences, children also begin to understand how they are a part of a world community where kindness and compassion for all people, animals and the environment are essential.
In this forum, Beth will share the many benefits of kids yoga and discuss how yoga can help to navigate your way through the challenges of parenthood… one deep breath at a time.

TINY HEARTS FIRST AID
FRIDAY 24TH NOVEMBER 12PM
Tiny Hearts First Aid was an organisation built from an industry need.
During her time as an advanced life support paramedic, co-founder of Tiny Hearts, Nikki Jurcutz, experienced first-hand the devastating effects of parents not knowing how to perform basic first aid.
While there were masses of information for new parents on nappies and prams - there was a definite information gap when it came to the health and wellbeing of their babies.
The devastating impact of this prompted Nikki to reach out to sister, Rachael Waia, who was working in education at the time, with a proposal to deliver first aid education that really makes a difference.
Tiny Hearts First Aid are creating a tribe of Proactive Parents who are empowered with the knowledge and skill of first aid and are proud to have educated over 45,000 members of the community in their life-saving education.
