With one in ten children being affected by Mental Health issues, our Mindfulness courses help children quiet their mind and reduce stress and anxiety.
What are the benefits?
What is it?
In today’s society of technology and pressure, it can be hard for children to ‘quiet their minds’ and focus on the tasks ahead. Practising mindfulness can help children shift the focus away from worry and anxiety, help them to manage stress, regulate their emotions and develop a more positive outlook.
YogaBugs teaches children mindfulness through a combination of yoga, breathing, visualisation, meditation and relaxation techniques. We teach meditation to show children how to distance themselves from disturbing thoughts and emotions and focus on the here and now and thus improving their concentration in the classroom.
What is involved?
YogaBugs mindfulness sessions run for a minimum of a10 weeks, working with one group of children for an hour or two groups of pupils in back-to-back half hour sessions.
Mindfulness programmes are available for KS1 and KS2 and all sessions are taught age appropriately. A session includes a sun-salutation warm-up and progressively introduces breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques.
We also introduce yoga inspired movements with mediation to help calm and relax children.
YogaBugs Mindfulness courses can also run as a breakfast club, helping children to start the day positively or as an after school club, calming children after a busy school day and sending them home relaxed and focused.
YogaBugs Mindfulness courses and staff training is a great way for your school to not only help the pupils but also help with the overall staff wellbeing.
We have two award winning workshops that your staff can attend to help broaden their knowledge on mindfulness, health and wellbeing.
The workshops are interactive, so your staff will leave with bundles of new knowledge, skills and techniques that they can use on themselves and with their students.
