Introducing and teaching Mindfulness to Children & Young People can help them learn some invaluable life skills that enable them to;

  • Focus, Concentrate and Observe Better

  • Be in contact with their bodies, feelings and emotions and know how to mindfully and ‘kind fully’ manage these

  • Calm themselves down, relax more, and learn how to manage and deal with anxiety

  • Build their self confidence

  • Be kinder to themselves and in turn to others



Why Mindfulness for children?

Just like us adults , life for children nowadays can be very busy & very active. They can have trouble sleeping, are easily distracted and often restless. Their heads of full of troubling thoughts and worries at times. The ‘On switch’ works fine so how can we, adults help them find the ‘ OFF Switch’ and learn to value and take time to ‘be’.. still & calm.

Each week, the children will be introduced a wide variety of guided mindfulness practices, stories, playful movement and yoga. We will share together our experiences of practicing and learn together in a fun, kind and open way.  The Children will be encouraged to practice at home using the book & CD Sitting Still Like a Frog.

The Course is suitable for all children, with and without a diagnosis.

It can be very supportive for children with ADHD, ADD,  Dyslexia, dyspraxia and those on the Autistic Spectrum.
