connecting children to peace
through mindfulness, movement,
Join us on a mindful journey!
Hi my name is Kathleen Walsh Rothschild and I am the founder of Peace Place for Kids. My intention with creating peace place for kids is to connect children to a vibration of peace through mindfulness, movement and meditation. Why? Because peace is a place where your life soars.
When you join our website you will have access to my magic carpet yoga classes for kids. You and your child can follow along as we take a mindful journey to places such as a forest, ocean or secret garden. Through yoga poses, we are able to imitate things they notice on their journey such as Tree Pose, Sun Pose, and Mountain Pose. The journey continues through a mindful visualization. In this meditation, children breathe, relax and feel the earth, sun and light through their body as they move energy up and down and allow the body to completely unwind. Interwoven in each class is a messages such as, positive thinking, gratitude, joy and love. As always we end the class with “you are a bright and shining star”
We also have mindful parenting tips for parents such as setting an intention, making gratitude a habit and other simple steps and ideas to add a positive vibration to our homes.
For fun we will show you our mindful craft ideas….making gratitude journals, coloring mandalas and making a nature table to name a few.
There will be meditations that will help your child relax and drift off to a peaceful sleep.
Please join me on this mindful journey, raising peaceful kids in a vibration of love.

Peace Begins With Me
It’s not about finding peace or looking for peace. It’s about connecting with peace. At Peace Place, we give children the tools to connect with the place of peace. You can’t strive, work hard, or study hard to find peace. Peace is a place of letting go and then the connection happens. How do children who are taught the opposite learn to let go? We let go of tension in the body through movement and exercises that move energy. We let go of thought through meditation. We let go of control by focusing on positive energy filled with gratitude. Why peace? Because peace is where your life soars.
Connecting with peace puts the child in harmony with life. When children connect with peace, they live a life of joy, because that is what they attract. They are able to go to that place of peace inside, no matter what is happening on the outside, and ultimately, peace is where the power lies. They are in control when they are at peace. External influences don’t bother them. When children connect with peace, they are able to listen to their own inner voice and intuition. Intuition guides the children to do what is best for them, which brings them to a vibration of peace. This vibration of peace attracts more good things and takes the child round and round in a circle of joy.
“I just wanted to thank you again for coming in on Friday and leading such a wonderful workshop. The kids were so engaged and happy,
as I’m sure you noticed. We haven’t had any experience like that in the classroom before and I look forward to trying to integrate
some of what you did with them into our days here, though I know I can’t do it as well as you!”
