Teaching Mindfulness to Children

I taught a mindfulness adult class to a group of primary school teachers last week. The class was for adults so it included three different types of meditation, some basic ‘you could try to use this in the moment’ tips and some chat. One of the questions I got afterwards surprised me but I realise now that it probably shouldn’t have. How do you teach this to children? By doing completely different things than what we have just done was my answer.Each Relax Kids class follows a seven step format; we start with movement and games which helps to release...
