mini-grit 6-8yrs (in person)
While learning about the way our brains work and meditating to circumvent mental illness, we’ll also express our creativity, talk about important aspects of being a person (like friendship and self-esteem), and have so much fun.
At Grit Vancouver, we use yoga to show how strong our bodies are, mindful meditation (aka #braintrain) to show how strong our spirits are, and awesome crafts to show how strong our creative sparks are.

grit (in person)
Let’s raise a generation of kids who are mentally happy and healthy, who know it’s okay to be strong and soft at the same time, who know how to deal with adversity, and who are totally in-tune with their unique awesome-ness.
Grit is an empowerment program designed to help humans develop the healthiest brains possible. At Grit Vancouver, we use yoga to show how strong our bodies are,
mindful meditation (aka #braintrain) to show how strong our spirits are, and awesome crafts to show how strong our creative sparks are.
We also talk about real topics like friendships/relational aggression, identity, anxiety + mental health, stress, pressure, gender stereotypes, technology, compassion, empathy and what being an authentic human is really all about.
