“This summer was literally a dream come true for me, and probably the most unforgettable summer of my entire life, and I have FICAM to thank for that. My husband and I just ran our first summer camp at our new capoeira studio for ten consecutive weeks. I have been teaching children for years, but never had I had the time and freedom before to really share and integrate the knowledge that I have gained over the years studying and working at FICAM and the QHC. So aside from learning martial arts, yoga, acrobatics and music and other fun activities and adventures we had planned, the kids also learned meditation, pranayam, and bioenergetics. I also incorporated several components of the Attention Dynamics program by teaching them all about connecting/disconnecting choices, doing a vision board project, and creating personal codes. I even used NLP with them to help them reach a specific personal goal of learning a new acrobatic move. Throughout the summer the kids learned how to pause, breathe and find another way to deal with situations that werenâ€™t serving them when they found themselves going into the â€œwrong mindâ€â€¦and believe me with a group of 20 kids of ages 4-13 hanging out together all day every day there were plenty of opportunities to practice this!!!
