It’s now been scientifically proven that practicing Mindfulness and Meditation on a daily basis, has a profound impact on our overall wellbeing. This is such a precious gift to gift our little ones as it’s an empowering skillset they can use now and when they are adults/productive members of the community.
Each week there is a different concept with all mindfulness games being strategically chosen. Children don’t even realise they are learning as we are having lots of fun, while getting rid of all that excess energy out of us from the day. Then we do some stretching and breathing techniques concluding with a beautiful Guided Meditation. Children also take home mindfulness tools which we use to recap in class each week.
Each term Calming Minds have a closed Facebook page for parents of the students who participate in our programme. The intention of this closed Facebook page and our programme is to take the whole family approach. The idea is to empower parents with the knowledge and tools, to keep the skill set alive in the home, so children start to self-regulate those big emotions we all feel at times and experience the power of Mindfulness and Meditation and the impact it has in their lives.
Hope to see you in Term 4!
