Mindfulness classes were created to provide special time for children to get to know themselves better, to learn to deal with different feelings and truly love the person they are.

 

Today's children are born into a modern world and pace of living that is way faster than their body and mind's capabilities. They are exposed to constant stimulations like: television, video games, smartphones after school activities, etc. They are taught to compare themselves to others or to measure up to certain standards. Due to all these, our children learn to work hard but never learn to simply BE. They are sucked into external world leaving them strangers to themselves, incapable of understanding their own feelings and the levels of stress they are under. During puberty, a feeling of confusion grows which results in feelings of being unfulfilled, lost and angry children.

 

Yoga is the easiest and most acceptable way of helping children to turn toward their inner self. Yoga poses can be used in imaginative play. While engaging their physical bodies and slowly engaging their minds, yoga helps them to bring their awareness to the present moment.Tai- chi is another wonderful discipline that will help teach "slowing down" and being present. Used after yoga it brings kids into an even slower, more relaxed mode. A few minutes of total relaxation and visualization helps kids completely relax and let go of stress. One of my favorite is a "magic carpet" where they lay on their backs, doing conscious breathing and imagining that we are flying on the magic carpet. Oh, the wonderful thing we see with our eyes of imagination!

I like to use my music teacher's experience to incorporate music into the class. I like to finish by listening to a piece of classical music and drawing or writing about feelings that the music awakens in them. Crafting and journaling following relaxation allows children to explore their inner consciousness and expand their creativity.We then discuss each.
