Your school can join us during the week or any other other week in the year for a Yoga session to help get children motivated about Physical Education! We have lots of session themes which we can deliver but can also work with schools with their own themes.
Childrens Mental Health Week
A week in which we help to raise awareness of the importance of supporting children and young people’s mental health. We provide Yoga and Mindfulness sessions in schools which give children tools to help anxiety, stress, emotions and build resilience.
Our Mindful day and half day workshops simultaneously empower children to improve and maintain their own physical and mental wellbeing, longer term. They support and encourage children to empty their minds showing them creative ways of doing this.
Yoga and Mindfulness has a brilliant way of helping create friendships support them. We provide a non competitive environment where friendships and social engagement opportunities can be maximised during yoga challenges and games.
Our sessions address feelings and thoughts directly, using yoga and mindfulness to address them and provide tools such as relaxation, guided discovery and mindful moments to manage the feelings
