On Wednesday, March 10, Shady Side Academy alumna Dr. Kali Arnold '94 of The Namaste Project was a featured guest speaker at the Junior School Parents' Association's monthly Coffee With the Head of School.
Dr. Arnold is a physician, yoga teacher, pilates teacher and reiki master practitioner in Atlanta who specializes in bringing mindfulness and stress release through mediation, yoga and reiki energy healing. After beginning her career in medicine as an orthopedic surgeon, she co-founded The Namaste Project in the belief that all children and adults deserve comprehensive social-emotional support.
Dr. Arnold spoke about her work at The Namaste Project and shared some mindfulness tips and techniques with parents, including to "stop, breathe and listen," when you are feeling overwhelmed and to have children to write down three things they are grateful for each day.
Thank you for sharing your expertise with your alma mater, Dr. Arnold!
