    Overview

    Mindful Kid & Teen classes teach students how to listen, pay attention and be calm.

    “Pay attention!” “Calm down!” “Listen!” These are the directions children often hear from adults. But do your children know how?  Mindfulness is the how.

    Our six-week Mindful Kid & Teen classes teach children and teen the simple yet profound tools of managing emotions, paying attention and being calm. Through a variety of activities, children learn where their feelings come from and how to better manage those feelings. When the child’s ability to concentrate is increased also improvement in school, sports, and other activities are increased. Scientific studies have shown, children who learn mindfulness are happier, healthier and more well-rounded.

    Our Mindful Kid & Teen classes are all about gaining the experience of Mindfulness as it is vital for practitioner of any age to have a firsthand experience of the benefits. Rather than taking “just another class,” our students are given tools they can use for life. A common reaction from our adult students is “I wish I had learned this as a kid.”

    Give Your Children this Gift and Enhance Their Present and Future Lives.

    What is Mindfulness?

    Mindfulness is the ability to feel one’s feelings and emotions without dramatizing nor minimizing its meaning. Being present, aware and attentive, responding rather than reacting.

    Research has shown Mindfulness:

    • Supports “readiness to learn”
    • Strengthens focus and concentration
    • Decreases stress and anxiety
    • Promotes self-reflection and self-calming
    • Improves impulse control
    • Develops natural conflict resolution skills
    • Improves self-esteem

    Schools teaching Mindfulness report:

    • Higher test scores on standardized tests
    • Fewer disciplinary issues
    • Less social conflicts
    • Fewer reports of bullying
    • Enhanced positive school climate
