Why it’s so important.
Meditation calms the mind and stills the body.
When we create space for this to happen, we offer ourselves a beautiful gift of tuning in to our bodies, without external stimulation and distraction, and allowing inner calm and wisdom to re-balance.
The benefits are profound, with noticeable emotional regulation, reduced anxiety, better sleep, enhanced concentration, lower blood pressure, clearer focus, and greater resilience.
Can kids meditate?
Absolutely! Anyone can meditate, no matter what age, and the younger you start your practice, the greater the benefits are going to be for your well being. Kids are so quick to grasp and enjoy meditation, it really does come so naturally for them.
About our meditations.
Our mindfulness based meditation sessions vary depending on the age group, from a mixture of body awareness, relaxation, visualisation and our own unique guided meditations.
What we do in our meditation sessions.
We begin with guided mindful breath work, teaching kids how to slow down the mind and body using their breath with different techniques that can be subsequently used anywhere, anytime.
We then go through some gentle movement sequences as a group to assist the body to open, relax and prepare for meditation.
Lying down with a blanket and eye pillow, or in a comfortable seated position, students are guided through an age appropriate relaxation and body awareness meditation.
After the meditation, students are invited to creatively express their emotions by writing or drawing, opening up the circle for conversations and sharing in the group (only for those who wish to).
Sessions can be held for school classes, as an alternate lunchtime activity or for individually selected student groups.
Our sessions are for 30 minutes and we provide everything, all you need to do is provide a suitable space.
