Ditteke Ederveen-Gorman — 

 Mindfulness Coach,  Radiant child® family yoga certified

Ditteke created the “I am mindful program” to bring peace into our community. This is established through daily mindful breathing practices and movements. What we focus on we get more of. So we tend to focus on positive intentions that set the day so we can be the best we can be. The importance of commitment, thankfulness, respect, expressing one’s feelings and making healthy choices for our mind, body and soul are all integrated in the program. This program makes every child love its own uniqueness: it’s ok to be you, you are unique and that is beautiful. The “I am mindful” program boosts the child’s brain potential, encourages cooperation and caring, increases attention and decreases power struggles and promotes learning and literacy.

The studio space is clean and cool and pretty. My husband and I just sat on the comfortable furniture and caught up on our reading while the girls had a terrific time. Thanks, WakaDoodles! " —Leatrice Oram
