Event description

Description

Note this is a six-week course session Dates: Wednesdays Aug 15th, 22nd, 29th, Sept 5th,12th, 26th.Time: 4.30-5pm. (Note 1 week break the 19th Sept.)

Suitable for boys and girls aged 7-12 years.

These ongoing weekly kids classes are fun and interactive. (There is no need to stay with your children for the classes and our studio is 5-10 mins from Marsden village bus stop in Karori)

Your kids will enjoy learning and practising key mindfulness exercises and techniques to help them manage stress and anxiety, focus and concentrate, be resilient and promote healthy friendships.


The hectic world we live in is something many adults find difficult to cope with at times. But what about the impact an ever-increasing drive to ‘succeed’ is having on our children? A world of constant action, noise, and expectations can deprive children of the quiet time they need to grow and learn. It can be a baffling and scary thing to navigate. One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the ability to be mindful – to be still and be in the moment.


Comments from other kids

“I was always getting told off for not paying attention…Mindfulness taught me how to pay attention.”

“Now when I feel angry I can stop and breathe before I do something stupid.”

“I find it easier to make friends; people seem to like me more.”

“I was losing my tennis match so badly that I stopped and did my mindful breathing so I could clear my mind. I went on to win the game.”

“Now when I get anxious I know why. Sometimes I look at my mindful jar or focus on my breathing and it’s not such a big deal anymore.”

Reference from the principal of Samuel Marsden Collegiate.

"In 2015 we had the privilege of introducing Mindfulness to the students through the excellent leadership of Cheryl Strawbridge(Ovio). She was able to connect with students of all ages and presented the concepts in an accessible and understanding manner. Cheryl also presented very successfully to a group of parents and daughters, many of whom have followed up further with her.

I unreservedly commend Cheryl and her Mindfulness programs to you and am happy to speak further if requested." Jenny Williams
