Growing Young Minds Fall Gym Classes 

Growing Young Minds (GYM) is a small group program educating children how to create daily habits that teach the importance of exercise, mindfulness, building a growth mindset and developing grit.  At GYM, we believe that are these positive physical and mental habits are the building blocks for personal, academic and social success.  GYM is a 10 week course meeting once a week for one hour.  Each class begins with a quick check in, followed by 25 minutes of exercise, 25 minutes of growth mindset work and finishing with a 5 minute mindfulness exercise.  Children are inspired to believe in themselves so they can achieve their goals by:

  • learning the value of exercise (helps us focus, gets us ready to learn, relieves anxiety, improves mood, builds confidence and keeps our bodies healthy) and how to view exercise as play.
  • establishing strengths and areas of growth (I am, I can, I will)
  • setting personal goals, creating a plan to reach these goals by breaking them down into manageable steps and building goal setting as a habit.
  • building executive functioning skills to establish and maintain habits and achieve goals
  • learning how to identify feelings throughout the day and strategies to help remain regulated
  • learning affirmation and gratitude practices
  • learning meditation practices
  • learning how to show kindness, patience and compassion towards ourselves and others in the group along every step of achieving our goals, especially when embracing challenges and failures.

Therapy Certified dog Marley also joins the groups to increase motivation, relieve anxiety surrounding challenging tasks and to bring joy to the children. Groups are run by Meena Tondravi MED, MS CCC-SLP, owner and founder of GYM, who is a Speech Language Pathologist with over 20 years experience working with children on social learning.  GYM groups will be held at Kelly Field and are $250/student for the 10 week course from 9/19-11/28.
