We run a weekly yoga and mindfulness learning program for children with a qualified yoga facilitator that introduces body awareness, emotional regulation, meditation, breathing and calming techniques, understanding of emotions and feelings, self-love, gratitude, inner and outer strength, flexibility, and much more.
Our Yoga and mindfulness program provide our children with learning opportunities that exemplify the strands of Te Whāriki " Our New Zealand National CUrriculum":
Ø Wellbeing – Nurturing emotional wellbeing by teaching the children the tools they need to manage their emotions.
Ø Belonging – Being a part of a group dynamic where the children work together and collaborate.
Ø Contribution – Providing a positive group framework where each individual child is valued for their participation (not just those who display a ‘talent’ for sport).
Ø Communication – Providing different ways for the children to be creative and expressive.
Ø Exploration – Helping children to gain confidence and develop control of their bodies.
