Event description

Description

As modern life becomes more hectic, our children can sometimes become overwhelmed by the pace of things. Increased pressures at school, trying to balance after-school activities and the challenges of growing-up in our super-connected multi-media world can leave them feeling drained and plain ‘stressed out’. Add in learning disabilities, anxiety or ADHD and sometimes that pressure is just too much to handle!

This 8-week mindfulness course is designed to help kids take a break and just BREATHE EASY!

Through games, activities and group discussion, children aged 8-12 will learn the ancient art of mindfulness, a technique that science has proven to reduce stress, improve focus and attention and increase general happiness. During the course, children will learn how to:

· Pay attention to their body and recognize the signals that they are becoming stressed out

· Understand what happens in their brains and body when they become stressed or anxious

· Use a variety of techniques to calm their body and mind

· Be more forgiving of and caring towards themselves

· Feel emotionally stronger and more confident

· Incorporate these tools as part of their daily life

Parents are encouraged to join their children in the class to observe the techniques being taught and to help support the child's home practise.

A minimum of 5 participants are required for this program to run.

Please note that this mindfulness program is not designed to be therapeutic in nature or to replace the guidance or direction of any professional psychologist, doctor or psychiatrist. Instead, this program is designed to complement these services and to be an additional tool that may prove helpful in reducing stress and improving overall quality of life.
