As Mindfulness becomes the buzzword in offices and even schools, what exactly is Mindfulness and what are its benefits?
Well, take a look at the alarming statistics showing how most of our children admit they feel stressed even at a young age, how they are bogged down with never ending homework and compulsory activities, and how they feel pressurised to keep up in our competitive environment. Adults feel overwhelmed with our workplace demands; our kids experience it in schools too! Taking on challenges and learning more knowledge is not the problem itself; the crunch comes when young minds are unable to strike a balance between study and rest, and fail to build mental and emotional resilience to deal with difficult issues.
Through consistent practice, Mindfulness gives us practical and simple ways to better manage our stress levels, gain clarity, and stay grounded to deal with day-to-day challenges. Through Yoga poses, breathing exercises and engaging activities, we aim to guide parents and children to directly experience the benefits of being physically supple and at ease. The best way to integrate Mindfulness in your child’s life is to practise it together with him/her.
This workshop is suitable for parents with school going children who are searching for simple and effective techniques to help their child manage stress and improve their ability to focus.
