Mindfulness and Yoga for Primary School and Secondary School children 

1 in 10 children suffer with poor mental health. We have designed and developed school based sessions which offer both physical and mental health benefits for children of all ages. We have also designed a programme specifically for adults too (click here for MYC for adults).

We offer unique and expert training through our MYC courses which offer both physical and mental health benefits. Children learn life-long skills and techniques that aim to deliver a sense of calm; happiness and general wellbeing whilst also developing core strength, coordination, stamina, fitness and balance. This programme delivers a suite of skills and tools that children can draw upon in everyday life and especially during times of increased stress or pressure (for example during SATs; friendship issues; transitions in school). The course is specially designed to cater for the needs of each Key Stage.

Each session is planned by experts in mindfulness and yoga and involves three key factors:

Breathing and Body - the children will learn to be in control of their breathing and will use breathing balls to help control this. They will also be taught through many different exercises the importance of appreciating their body and to be more aware of each part of their body and to use their breathing to feel happier in times of stress.

Listening - the children will listen to mindful music which they will also have access to at home to help them to focus and relax. This music can be used at times of stress or worry to help the children to feel calm.

Moving - mindful movement and yoga - each session will involve a specially designed yoga session where the children will develop core strength, coordination, stamina, fitness and balance.

We offer a bespoke programme to schools over a timeframe to suit you. We recommend that at least a term of classes are booked where possible.

We can also offer a before school, lunchtime or after school club paid for by parents or school.
