Peace in Piermont was created with the intention of teaching children, adults and families the importance of living in the present moment.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is our ability to be completely present and aware of where we are, and what we are doing with openness, curiosity and acceptance. Although mindfulness is innate, it can be cultivated via scientific methods, especially through seated, standing, or walking meditation.
Studies say that eight in ten Americans experience stress in their everyday lives and have a difficult time relaxing their bodies and calming their minds. This puts them at a greater risk of heart disease, stroke and various other illnesses.
Multiple studies have shown that mindfulness meditation can change the brain’s gray matter and brain regions linked with memory, the sense of self, the regulation of emotions and improved quality of sleep.

Kids yoga + Mindfulness
In our children’s yoga and mindfulness classes, students learn to connect their brain, body and breath. Throughout various games, exercises, writing activities, creative art projects and multi-sensory learning, students will:
Strengthen their pre-frontal cortex, the part of the brain that’s responsible for executive functioning — this encompasses our abilities to plan ahead, manage challenging emotions, focus our attention, respond thoughtfully, etc.
Discover their innate ability to self-regulate their bodies and emotions
Practice ways of activating their parasympathetic nervous system, which helps to calm their bodies and combat stress
Understand the value of remaining in the present moment
Be exposed to strategies that will help bring them into the present moment and sustain presence
Adult Yoga + Fitness
Join us for an assortment of yoga and fitness classes curated for our adult audience. We offer early morning and evening yoga classes, as well as early morning fitness.
Kids Night Out
Take the opportunity to enjoy a dinner, sans kids, and drop them off at PiP for Kids Night out. Kids will participate in creative play, practice yoga and enjoy playing board games. We will also spend some time practicing our reading and/or writing skills.
This is not babysitting but rather a mindfully crafted experience designed to teach developmentally appropriate social and emotional skills to kids ages 2 - 12.
Disconnect from the busy, technologically driven world around you and connect with your loved ones. Improve concentration, flexibility, coordination, and communication skills together while doing yoga, breathing, mindfulness games and more! Practicing as a family has been proven to reduce anxiety and stress, while fostering and strengthening emotional connection.
