WASHINGTON, DC (March 7, 2017)—- Just Meditate, a recently opened meditation studio located in Bethesda, MD, is excited to announce that they will be offering kids' classes. "Just Kids" classes offer children the opportunity to learn the benefits of mindfulness early in life. Kids, like adults, experience stress in their daily lives and this class will give them tools to respond to the ups and downs of life in a healthier way. Just Meditates classes relieve stress, bolster health and settle the mind.

"Just Kids" 30 - minute class is designed for kids primarily ages 6-10 years old. It focuses on introducing children to the fundamentals of mindfulness. Age appropriate exercises involving the breath, sound, emotional awareness and mindful movement will be taught. Parents stay in the room throughout the class and are encouraged to practice along with their children. Both parent and child must register but only one fee is charged. The kids' classes will be taught by Ofosu Jones-Quartey. Ofosu has been practicing meditation since 1999 and has been working directly with children since 2014.

"As the parent of a 10 year old, I see first hand the stress that children experience. Before I opened the studio, we did some short meditations together before bed with different apps and it made a big difference. Now that the studio is open, I have the opportunity to share those benefits with my daughter and my community in a more direct and meaningful way," said Amy Thaler, founder of Just Meditate.

Just Meditate offers customized 30 and 45-minute meditation classes as well as private sessions, all taught by meditation experts and innovators. Classes incorporate ancient meditation practices but are delivered in secular manner, and are guided so new and experienced clients can ease into their practice.

Just Meditate opened the doors to its first studio in November 2016 and is located at 4928 St. Elmo Avenue, Bethesda, Maryland.
