Chill Skills for Kids
Classes involve a range of fun activities to help kids learn how to relax and explore their imagination. This opens the possibility of greater achievement of their potential.
The kids are shown simple relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises, stretching, gentle movement, yoga poses and simple visualisations. They listen to the relaxing, happy meditation stories and their imagination and creativity is encouraged by fun drawing activities.
With the use of journals the children also learn about creating positive self talk and acknowledging different emotions. There is a focus on friendship, empathy, self love, and belonging.
The classes are based around nature and are a lot fun and all techniques and activities are evidenced based.
Developed by ‘Path of Calm’ in Victoria, Australia and run by fully trained and qualified practitioners.
