CANCELLED - The Mindful School

Please note this course is postponed and a new date has yet to be arranged, apologies for any inconvenience caused.


The Mindfulness Conference for Education is now a national event. And with our current mental health crisis, the government are now looking at how we can help our children to reduce their stress, deal with anxiety and depression and promote their wellbeing. With youth happiness at an all-time low it seems the most essential learning tool for any child are skills on how to live! With this national awareness it is anticipated that government funding will be made available for controlled trials in 100 Primary Schools and 50 Secondary schools across the country by 2020. Find out what all the fuss is about and how you could introduce mindfulness to the whole school community.

Please bring a comfortable rug/yoga mat and cushion for floor work. Floor work is not compulsory and being seated on a chair is the alternative posture for some of the exercises.
