"Mindfulness is paying attention to the here and now, with kindness & curiosity, so that we can choose our behaviour .” 

– Dr Amy Saltman

Essentially mindfulness involves directing our attention to our present moment experience with open-minded curiosity. This enables us to respond more skilfully to the events of life as they arise in the moment.

Why Mindfulness in Schools?

Increase focus, concentration and enhance emotional regulation

Research demonstrates that mindfulness training improves health and wellbeing, and helps people of all ages learn more effectively, think more clearly, perform better, feel calmer and less anxious and supports the development of resilience.

Mindfulness gives us the opportunity to pause and approach stressful situations in a calm thoughtful way.

 

Why Yoga and Moving Meditation in Schools?

Preparing bodies and minds for learning

Physical activity stimulates the brain keeping it functioning at an optimal level. Using the body to focus the mind helps to harness kids' energy, balances the nervous system and results in children that are alert but calm, essential for effective learning. Yoga can benefit all children, especially those who find it hard to regulate their emotions and focus their energy.

Our Yoga within sports programs are intelligently sequenced and underpinned by a thorough understanding of anatomy. We systemically build strength and flexibility throughout the whole body whilst also improving spatial awareness, coordination, balance and focus.
