Often this manifests in the following behaviours:
Do you have a child, or work with children who have challenges in any of these areas? Then this might be the time to teach them mindfulness skills, which will in turn provide life-long benefits.
Mindfulness is noticing what is happening around you right now, and learning to REALLY focus on the present moment. When children learn simple mindfulness techniques, they are able to focus more deeply and begin to pay attention allowing them to improve many areas in their lives.
These classes are specially designed to teach you and your child how to apply mindfulness and meditation skills to build resilience, enabling you both to cope with stress and difficult everyday situations.
Kelly will skillfully lead you through a series of exercises and discussions which focus on the importance of listening, for both adults and children. You will develop ways for the whole family to improve their listening skills. At the heart of this will be learning age-appropriate breathing and relaxation techniques.
The calm and safe environment of our Studio will support you as you enjoy these fun sessions and spend precious time together with your child, experiencing many benefits including:
Children aged between 6 and 11 years old and their family member or guardian. Mindfulness is a practice to be shared and taken into our everyday lives, which is why it is important to experience this course together so that both children and their grown-ups can learn techniques and skills to apply to life.
No previous experience of mindfulness or meditation is required.
Nothing is required for this course, although you may like to bring your own water bottles. Mats, chairs, blankets and bolsters are provided.
