What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is practised to help anxiety and to enable us to create moments of calm in our busy lives. Paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, with curiosity and kindness, to things as they are.

Essential tenets for mindfulness practice, and every session will start with these:-

  • Grounding, Centring and Anchoring

  • Posture adjustment; Shoulders down and back. Head over neck,

  • Chin tucked

  • Finding comfort in silence

  • Creating your own bubble

  • Notice - nature, sounds, breath

  • Body Scan to connect to your physical self

  • Breathing - box breathing, finger breathing, longer out-breath, very powerful for reducing feelings of anxiety or panic

  • Seated meditation 5-10 mins-  If physical sensations or thoughts interrupt your meditation, note the experience and then return your focus to your breath

  • Be kind and patient with yourself– it takes practice- tiny steps- treat yourself like you would a good friend

How will we structure the time?

We will  always engage with our young people to receive feedback and respond to what they feel works best. In general this is how our course structure will look:

  • Chat circle - hearing from everyone

  • Gentle flow yoga to embrace the power of movement in a thoughtful and calming way

  • Mindfulness and Meditation Coaching - aimed specifically to help during exam season, learning how to adjust thought patterns and be present - to reduce nerves, stress, anxiety and improve emotional wellbeing

  • Yin and Restorative Yoga - Deeply relaxing and working into physical sensations to reduce tension and improve quality of breathing and sleep

  • Close session with an informal sharing and positive affirmations
