MINDFULNESS CLASS FOR CHILDREN
Connecting Body and Sensory Awareness with Mindfulness
This class for children will incorporate mindful meditation techniques with body and sensory awareness activities, enhancing the body/mind connection. By learning and practicing mindfulness, it can help us calm down, reduce impulsiveness, identify our feelings, improve attention, improve body awareness and generally feel better.
Each week I will focus on a thematic mindful technique enhanced by body and sensory awareness techniques. A creative project to reinforce the mindful technique will be incorporated.
The class is a 45 minute class (sometimes 50 min depending on the theme that week) held once- a-week for 10 weeks. Class size is kept to a maximum of 6 participants to allow for personal attention. An additional one-time evening class will be held for parents only, to learn some of the meditation and body and sensory awareness activities. (time of class will be announced later).
Cost: $300 for 10 week series. No materials fee this series.
When: Tuesdays at 6pm for 10 sessions: January 14th-March 24th (no class Feb. 18th)
Ages: third grade-sixth grade
