We have been running mindfulness programs in schools as well as our studio in Fitzroy for the last year. (taught by a certified children’s personal trainer, yoga teacher, meditation and mindfulness teacher) – I was amazed as each session I learn so much from the kids as they do from me. I love it and the kids are amazing beings such beautiful souls. Our mindfulness meditation in schools and our studio confirms so many benefits: it increases optimism and happiness, decreases bullying and aggression, increases compassion and empathy for others and helps students resolve conflicts and day to day challenges.
We love asking the kids what they think mindfulness means or is? It puts a smile on my face at every session. Some of the answers I have received are
Sarah says “When I came to class I was angry and wanted to punch my brother in the face. After 45m I felt like I was floating on a cloud, and afterward, I hugged my brother” mum and dad are much happier with me.
John says “My mum dragged me to the class because she says I have a temper. I think I’m ok. After a few classes, I learned to breathe and count to ten before I lose my temper. It’s fun and I think I’m getting better as mum is happier and I feel better”
Jane says “I wanted to know what it was all about as everyone is talking about it. I learned to speak up for myself and feel more confident and I love the breathing buddy exercise its fun” and I’ve met new friends.
Rex says “I like the smell game its fun and sometimes we get to eat the orange”.
Lizzie says “I feel happier after the session and I love my mum and dad more as they do things for me” and I love the snacks after wards.
These are some of my fav responses. We have so many responses they always make me smile. -“chilling from our troubles and stress,” “keeping peace in your head” it’s like swimming in the ocean and when the waves wash over you, the stress leaves your body”
Mindfulness meaning – a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.
