Mindfulness for Kids is an 8 week course delivering the ‘youth mindfulness’ programme. It is aimed at children who are aged 7-11.
Decades of research shows that mindfulness practice is one of the most effective methods of enhancing wellbeing and reducing anxiety. On the Youth Mindfulness course children will learn about the benefits of a mindful mind and how it can equip them with the skills to be fully present in the moment.
Children learn to improve their concentration, regulate emotions, reduce aggressive behaviour and enhance their happiness. This is achieved through practical mindful practice that builds throughout the duration of the course combined with teacher enquiry, mindful movement and lots of interactive fun.
The course explores many themes; intention, attention, attitude, gratitude, resilience, kindness to self and others. These skills will empower young people to be better equipped for the years ahead and will, undoubtedly, enhance their lives.
