Do you want to share mindfulness techniques with children and teens?

 

This one day workshop will provide you with tools and techniques to be able to incorporate small practices into your children's lives and (just as importantly) YOUR life.

Mindfulness can seem like a bit of a holy grail of enlightenment; but it does not have to be quite such  challenge.

During our day together I will take you through a Kundalini Yoga Kriya to Open and Calm the Heart, making all information shared easily absorbed.  You will get to experience the healing benefits of Kundalini Yoga.

I will talk you through the science of mindfulness and WHY it is so valuable to us, as continually thinking humans!

I will share practices, tools and meditations that enable children to 'drop' easily into a mindful state.
 

This innovative one day workshop will equip you with the tools and know how to incorporate mindfulness into your class/child's day effortlessly.

You will leave the day with the ability to  nurture and implement a feeling of calm, clarity and concentration, not just for your class. but also for yourself– a clear healer to stress and a boost to creativity.

By understanding mindfulness and how movement of the body go hand in hand , you will receive the benefit of being able to change yours and your children's reaction to stress, enhancing resilience and improving interpersonal relationships and communication.

aboutMe

I am Jo, a Yoga Teacher.  I work with schools, parents and youth establishments to enable them to provide mindfulness, yoga and promote good mental health to children and young adults.

I assist our children and young adults in the treatment of depression, anxiety and other 'growing up politics' that they deal with on a daily basis.

I am qualified as a Starchild Yoga Instructor, Yoga for the Special Child Facilitator, Neuro-Biology of Mental Health Illness for Kundalini Teachers, Kundalini Yoga Level 1 & Level 2 Ongoing.  I am a member of both the Kundalini Yoga Yeachers Association (KYTA) and the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Assosciation (IKYTA).

Why Mindfulness for Children is Important?

10% of children suffer from some form of diagnose - able mental health illness.  There are many suffering from illness that is non diagnosed

 

That means that in a classroom of 30 children there are 3 gorgeous kiddies experiencing depression or anxiety at any given moment.

It makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

 

We, as the guiding generation, MUST do something about it - and we can!!

Teaching Mindfulness will benefit EVERY aspect of their lives moving forward (and, if you let it, quite possibly yours).

Feedback I received after delivering a Yoga & Mindfulness Class to a Year 6 class in May 2018.

'Jo delivered some wonderful yoga sessions to a group of 10-11 years olds.  Children can feel some pressure in Year 6, and as a teacher, I was amazed by how the ... session completely transformed the children’s outlook. Jo's clear instructions and friendly nature engaged all of the pupils, leaving the children in a much calmer place than at the start of the class.

The session gave instant benefits with many of the children commenting about how great they felt afterwards. I have since seen several children use some of the techniques taught to cope in different situations – a valuable tool for life.  I wouldn’t hesitate to use yoga again the classroom – thank you Jo Yoga!'

Your course was amazing. No, AMAZING! I can’t believe that from a chance ad, which popped up on Facebook of all things, gave me so much. The universe aligned this course just for me, it seems. As I drove home, I felt elated and had the biggest smile on my face all the way home, with such a deep seated sense of wellness and confidence that this was ‘right.’  If only for that, I thank you. 
 
Your delivery was warm, engaging and open. Your content was so detailed and vast in all the teaching tips, techniques and knowledge that I left your classroom feeling completely equipped to deliver the topic confidently. It was truly a wonderful experience. Thank you. Thank you. 
 
Most of all though, I so enjoyed meeting you. I found you warm and inspiring. And I hope, with time, I will be able to shape & share my teaching space in the same manner that you do.
