WORKING WITH HIGHLY-CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS THROUGH ORGANIZATIONS LIKE MINDFUL SCHOOLS™, SHELLY WORKS WITH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS TO INTRODUCE MINDFULNESS TO CHILDREN IN ORDER TO IMPROVE FOCUS, PROMOTE SELF-REGULATION AND INCREASE EMPATHY.
We know that to really make a positive impact on children’s mental health, we need to provide them with skills and tools that can be used throughout their lives. When we tune into our body and our mind through mindfulness and meditation, we can improve our learning.
Certified instructors deliver mindfulness curriculum for children that is adaptable, using developmentally appropriate language to explain key mindfulness concepts and practices to children and young adults. It promotes strong connections between teachers with children, and improvements in student behavior in areas of attention, self-regulation, engagement, and compassion.
Mindfulness programming in schools has been scientifically proven to help students with sleep, wellbeing, managing emotions, concentration and school behavior, including overall reductions in bullying. We offer resources, training and support, tailoring each program around a school’s unique culture, goals and priorities.
A WHOLE-SCHOOL APPROACH
Research has shown that involving the whole community – teachers, parents and students – is the most effective way to gain the long-lasting benefits of mindfulness. Our team makes bringing mindfulness meditation into the classroom as easy and accessible as possible. We offer face-to-face workshops with trained facilitators who can demonstrate the ease of using meditation in the classroom, at home and in life. These workshops provide students, staff and parents with the tools to understand how to cope with emotions and feelings in a world that can be chaotic and overwhelming.
