Art of Living's Episode, "The Art and the Young"

In this clip from the Art of Living's episode "The Art and the Young," which aired nationwide winter 2008, Suzy Rossol Matheson has the opportunity in an adaptive dance class at Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas, TX to reach a variety of therapeutic goals with children of all ages.  With the aid of sensorimotor props such as scarves and the OctabandTM, children explore KMP tension flow rhythms, expand movement repertoire, and enhance socialization through various movement activities.  A weekly ritualistic positive affirmation ends the group which instills hope and fosters positive self-esteem.
