MINDFUL ME is an in school mindfulness program specifically designed for students from K - 6 and high school 7-12. The program caters to all abilities, including those with special needs. The program is non-spiritual to accommodate students of all backgrounds and religions.
‘Mindfulness’ is being completely engaged in the present moment, acknowledging and accepting one’s thoughts and feelings without judgement. Mindfulness Movement (MiMo) is physical movement that includes stretching and strengthening poses in a mindful way.
Yogazoo offers a unique program that combines mindfulness and mindfulness movement (MiMo) in a straightforward and intentional way. Our approach incorporates five key elements in each session: connect, breathe, move, focus and relax.
Within these elements students are taught fundamental life skills that are immediately available for daily use. The program creates a skilful culture of kindness, calm, safety and connection within the school environment.
Benefits can include:
A reduction in stress and anxiety;
Development of resilience and emotional self-regulation;
An improvement in attention, memory and concentration;
Improved academic achievement;
Gaining a general sense of well-being and calmness.
Our program provides support to children with autism, ADHD, obesity, depression, stress and anxiety, among others.
