Mindfulness and Me: A Mindfulness Playshop for Children Ages 8-11

In Mindfulness and Me lessons, kids will learn a variety of mindfulness, yoga, and de-stressing techniques. This can help to cope with an often overstimulating world, and also help in managing of the big feelings of life. Mindfulness has become a popular term and wide spread concept in recent years, even making its way into some of our school systems. This is because for both adults and children it can have a real benefit. We can learning to better understand and befriend our minds, we can learn to be aware of and calm our bodies and help ourselves to learn how to processing emotions, through the gentle witnessing of ourselves in the now.

In each lesson we will be using a variety of games and activities to practice mindfulness. We will learn about our breathe, about different ways to meditate, and about body centred awareness. And be having lots of fun throughout!
