In anticipation of Global Wellness Day (GWD) 2019, Universal Companies partnered with Moonflower Montessori School in Abingdon to host wellness circles for students, who were divided into age groups and led through mindfulness and breathing activities by yoga instructors.

The theme of this year’s GWD—Wellness for Children—aims to create awareness of the need for young people to be actively involved in their own well-being. Through holistic practices including meditation, energy medicine, movement and nutrition, the hope is to teach children the benefits of being healthy. Three primary areas of focus are: self-love, breathing and mindfulness.

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

Saturday, June 8, 2019, will mark the eighth annual GWD.
