Mindful Movement: Connect with Nature
Time & Location
About The Event
Next school holidays, Domna (Echo Heart Yoga) and Michelle (Star Yoga For Kids) will be joining forces to offer Primary School Aged children the chance to experience Mindful Movement, and connect them with nature.
What is Mindful Movement? Mindful Movement is the term given to any movement activity which is done with full attention, focus, presence or intention. Mindful Movement not only develops physical skills, but it also increases emotional wellbeing. By becoming more connected with your movement, you increase self-awareness and develop qualities such as curiosity, kindness and compassion. During this Mindful Movement session, children will be lead through mindful yoga & tai chi practices, go for a mindful bushwalk & practice mindful eating.
Why in nature? Nature can teach us so many important life lessons: to appreciate the sunshine after the storm; to look for rainbows when it starts to rain; that all changes in life can be beautiful. And many, many more! Being outside in nature is very calming and grounding, but it also boosts your energy levels. Breathing in fresh air is great for your lungs, and getting some sun can recalibrate your sleep patterns. Plus, we have this stunning National Park right on our doorstep. So let’s explore it!
What else do I need to know? Arrive at 9:45 for a 10am start. The session will be held outdoors, so please pack sunscreen, hat, jacket, water bottles, bug spray & make sure your child is wearing enclosed shoes. If it is raining on the day, the session will either be postponed or cancelled (full refund given if session is cancelled). For everyone’s safety, group sizes are limited, so if you’re interested, book in quick! A light Morning Tea will be provided – if you would like to stay for a picnic lunch after the session – please do! BYO food for picnic lunch. Whilst the purpose of this session is to connect with nature, any wildlife we may encounter will be viewed & appreciated from a safe distance.
