Mindfulness and Yoga May 30, 2019 – Posted in: Book News
Much has been written about the importance of living more mindful lives. The growing need to focus on taking time to live in the moment, being fully present in whatever we are doing comes as a timely antidote to reports of rising anxiety levels in children and more and more screens competing for our attention.
Mindfulness and Yoga both work brilliantly in the school setting, allowing children to make meaningful links between both their emotional and physical health. Through these ‘lessons’ children are given regular opportunities to focus on their mental and emotional well being – improving their ability to concentrate and focus on their learning, helping them to self-regulate more effectively, manage impulsivity and reduce conflict.

As more and more schools make this an essential part of their curriculum we are seeing an increasing number of beautiful children’s books being published on both Mindfulness and Yoga.
