Our work in Schools & Nurseries for children
“Following our Mindful Mentors programme in High schools October-December 2022 we have achieved a 26 % increase in children knowing how to help themselves when they feel anxious worried or angry and a 25% increase in the children we work with feeling physically, emotionally, and mentally well. “
Helping children and young people to nurture their mental health through meditation, mindfulness and yoga.
Whether the children have just learned to walk, or they are feeling the challenges of exams prior to leaving school, Rainbow Park Yoga can help by providing age-appropriate classes.
The benefits of these sessions and long-term mindfulness Programmes are:
We work in both primary and secondary schools and our work is cross curricular, meaning we can incorporate meditation, mindfulness and yoga into the school day or we can do extra-curricular classes, before school, at lunchtimes or after school.
Rainbow Park Yoga can provide 1-1 support, group programmes or weekly yoga clubs. We arrange these on a termly or yearly basis with schools. The support provided is bespoke to the children to suit their and the schools needs to improve mental, physical and emotional health.
For Nurseries this tends to be group yoga classes that incorporate, movement through yoga that has a theme such as going to the zoo, there will be songs, breathing exercises with props to allow the children to start to recognise their breath and quiet time which is a story.
