  • YOGA

    Yoga is the union of the mind and body. It is more than just an activity limited to your body; it has a profound impact on the human mind, reducing the fluctuations of the consciousness. Yoga is a practice of transforming every aspect of life.

    The benefits of yoga in schools:

    1. Develop body awareness
    2. An increase in confidence and positive self-image
    3. Feel part of a healthy, non-competitive group
    4. Helps to manage stress and anxiety
    5. Improves ability to be less reactive; more mindful of thoughts, words and actions
    6. Build concentration, focus and attention span
    7. Increases balance and co-ordination
    8. Giving the practisioner an alternate way to handle challenges and stay calm during chaotic moments in the classroom
  • FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT

    Fundamental movement is specific gross motor skills that are developed using various body parts such as legs, arms, hands, feet, head and neck. The movement taught includes, running, jumping, skipping, kicking, catching, throwing, climbing and balancing.

    These skills will assist children’s lifelong ability to participate in physical activity but also help them develop self-esteem and social skills.

  • MINDFULNESS

    Mindfulness is the practice of bringing one’s full awareness to the present moment. It is observing thoughts, feelings and sensations with an attitude of non-judgement, kindness and acceptance. This results in greater self-awareness and enables us to become happier, healthier, more empathic and more resilient.

  • CREATIVE PLAY

    Creativity is the freest form of self-expression. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling for children than to be able to express themselves openly and without judgment.

    When children engage in creative play, they significantly enhance the development of intellectual and cognitive skills, emotional skills, social and physical development. It is important for children to learn these skills at an early age so they can apply to other areas of their life as they grow older.

    When we give children the opportunity to play freely they learn and discover about themselves which is vital to a healthy development.

    Activities such as arts, crafts, singing, dancing, acting and reading, are all considered forms of creative play that nourish a child’s soul and allow them to express and cope with their feelings.

  • MEDITATION

    Meditation is a practice where the individual surrenders to the present moment rather than dwelling on the unchangeable past or undetermined future. This induces a mode of consciousness. Studies show that meditation is extremely effective for decreasing stress, depression, anxiety and insomnia. Improving concentration, focus, productivity and creativity. And gives the ability to manage and describe emotions. Meditation has been linked to greater compassion and an overall better quality of life.
