Universal Companies Initiates Children’s Wellness Circles for Global Wellness Day 2019

“We want to encourage children to integrate wellness practices into their lives on a daily basis and to carry on those practices throughout their lives,”

GWD founder Belgin Aksoy

Global Wellness Day is an international celebration of wellness. Saturday, June 8, 2019, will mark the eighth annual event with the Cayman Islands, China, Peru, Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Dominican Republic taking part this year.

In anticipation of Global Wellness Day (GWD) 2019, Universal Companies partnered with Moonflower Montessori School in Abingdon to host wellness circles for students. Students were broken into two groups, by age, and were led through a series of mindfulness and breathing activities. Cory Scott, RYT 500 yoga instructor and licensed child and family therapist led the circles with Breece Bryan, RYT 200 yoga instructor leading the breathing exercises.

The circles are intended to get children learning about breathing exercises to improve their health and manage their stress; mindfulness to improve emotional and physical wellbeing; and self-love to let go of shame, anger, and blame, and to feel at peace and accept themselves and others.

“It is our hope that this idea will stick and even spread to other schools,” Universal Companies’ CEO, Karen Short, states, “We’d love to continue our partnership with Moonflower and are so grateful to be able to lead wellness initiatives that impact future generations.”
