What is Mindfulness?
What is Mindfulness and how can it improve our well-being?
Mindfulness, meditation and yoga can be extremely effective in developing children's imagination, emotional resilience and overall health.
Here at The Sea Within, we are passionate about teaching children how to achieve moments of peace and calm using the creative forms of mindfulness. This includes: yoga and movement, art, meditation and mindfulness exercises.
Studies show that regular mindfulness practice will improve attention span, feelings of calm, social skills and caring towards others. Through meditation, movement and creative activities children are provided with an opportunity to gain a greater awareness of their bodies, minds and emotions. In turn empowering them with life long tools.
The Sea Within works collaboratively with schools, teachers, parents and other local organisations to provide yoga and mindful art opportunities for children and young people.
Children often struggle to manage the stresses and pressures of exams, busy schedules and social pressures. Also, the transition from childhood to adulthood can be tough emotionally, physically and mentally. The stress of exams, social media and body image can cause anxiety and self esteem issues in many young people.
Meditation and yoga movements built into a child's daily routine can dramatically improve their life and ability to cope with what it throws at them.
I offer services to schools and colleges, local organisations, charities and cultural venues such as art galleries and museums.
Services include: Yoga & mindfulness for children and young people. School mindfulness sessions. Mindful art workshops. Mindful nature walks.

creative Mindfulness for young people
The transition from childhood to adulthood can be tough emotionally, physically and mentally. The stress of exams, social media and body image can cause anxiety and self esteem issues in many young people.
During my sessions students will learn about what mindfulness is and how it can help them to; regulate their emotions, build self-esteem, reduce anxiety and trust their own inner voice.
Themes are often inspired by nature and current issues, encouraging young people to connect with the earth and to find compassion for themselves and others.
Sessions can be delivered both online and in an outdoor setting. Weekly classes available.
