Life is full of ups & downs, even for children. Mindfulness offers kids lifelong skills that can help them navigate all kinds of experiences with greater awareness, balance & compassion. Through engaging activities, students learn to focus, manage stress, regulate emotions & develop a positive outlook.They learn to pause & respond to situations rather than react. They develop a better understanding of themselves, others & the world around them, leading to a deeper sense of wellbeing! Interactive activities & creative processing are all part of the experience! Taught by Kelly Petrie.
