Our well-being program for schools is a fun and active session, packed with practical advice to inform and encourage healthy choices for children and adults alike.
Why nutrition? Because the research shows students learn better when they’re well nourished. Healthy eating has been linked to higher grades, better memory and focus, faster information processing and improved health as well as improved attendance rates.
Why mindfulness meditation? Studies have shown that students trained in mindfulness meditation experienced improvement in working memory and gained an effective and efficient technique for improving cognitive function overall.
Why Yoga? The ancient practice of yoga offers a multitude of benefits to modern-day students at every grade level. Yoga’s combination of breath and movement can help alleviate social and academic stress. With more than 20 million practitioners, yoga is making its way into schools with plenty of potentially positive outcomes.
Hi Lindy, I just wanted to thank you for joining us today and sharing your knowledge. The children and staff were all so engaged and impressed and went away with a new understanding of ‘ food and us’ – it was perfect and I have received lots of positive comments – thank you!
