Mindful & Well Education Workshops give children and teens the space to relax and reset over the weekend. Students have the opportunity to pause from homework, social media, and extracurriculars and give their bodies and minds some much-needed care. The goal of these workshops is for students to leave feeling more calm and content, and to have had fun along the way!

Workshops are also a great way for students to experience the Mindful & Well program without committing to a longer course. 

In the Mindful & Well Education workshops, we engage in...



No previous yoga experience necessary. A gentle yoga session helps students release the physical impacts of stress, and reset their nervous system. 



Students are introduced to mindfulness through different activities and modalities of practice. 


(What is mindfulness?)



Heartfulness practices help nurture positive mind states such as compassion and gratitude.

About Mindful & Well Education

Hi! I’m Emily Listmann. I created Mindful & Well because as a teacher, I was 

acutely aware of the toxic levels of

stress, anxiety, and depression

faced by youth, parents, and

educators. I wanted to provide 

students with an antidote to these

negative feelings. In the Mindful &

Well program, students learn to replace harmful habits and emotions with strategies for self-care and positive relationships. This positive mind state is the foundation of all learning: academic, social-emotional, and intuitive.


Meet Missy!

Emily will be joined by Missy Bollengier for Mindful & Well Education's courses and weekend workshops. Missy is also a former classroom educator with a degree in Childhood Development. She is a certified Yin Yoga teacher and will lead Mindful & Well youth through mindful, calming, and therapeutic movement and meditation in our fall programs. Missy runs her own business here in Santa Cruz called "Balance Your Life," supporting people of all ages in increasing self awareness and removing barriers to their happiness. She is a mother of four wonderful children, and her laid-back nature allows her to easily connect with youth. 

Missy is awesome, and we are so lucky to have her join us at Mindful & Well this season! 


The Setting

Mindful & Well is based in my welcoming home. With a private backyard canyon in nature, the location is ideal for the program. It is conveniently located on the West Side of Santa Cruz.
