Mindfulness in Schools: Teaching mindfulness through movement
Our Mindfulness in Schools programs bring together Mindfulness and Conscious Movement to help children develop their body-mind connection, personal awareness, empathy and inner calm, while at the same time introducing them to a mindfulness-based meditation practice.
The modern world contains a myriad of activity, over-stimulation and distraction. In general children find it difficult to be still which can make Mindfulness Meditation a challenge. Our Mindfulness in Schools programs use easy stretches and flowing movements to anchor the mind and body to the breath.
Effectively Mindful Movement is a moving meditation and a dynamic mindfulness practice. Mindfulness in Schools is a form of attention and focus training which enables the mind to be clear and shifts the body into a state of relaxation. The ability to practice being present, mindful and calm are invaluable life skills that can transform a child’s life.

" Nicole recently delivered a Mindful Movement program with our preps. The children loved her warm, enthusiastic nature, they responded with pleasure to the sessions and they particularly loved the movements that touched their hearts. Each session saw an improvement in their mindfulness, their ability to do the moves and their enjoyment of the program.”
