Creating calm confident children
Relax Kids offers a unique 7 steps system of children's relaxation and mindfulness that will help children decrease stress and anxiety and support good mental health, pupil self-esteem, positive behaviour and resilience.
A University study is currently underway to show how Relax Kids improves child emotional well-being and self esteem. In a 3-year pilot, Relax Kids helped reduced exclusions in Sylvester School from 19 to zero. Violent episodes were reduced by 75%.
Relax Kids sessions are active, they incorporate movement and exercise, mindfulness and relaxation games, stretching, peer or self massage, breathing techniques, affirmations and visualisations. Each class is based upon an imaginative theme, and gently introduces children to simple and fun mindfulness tools that can be used in all areas of their lives. They can be for the entire class or targeted students working on a specific goal.
Regular Relax Kids sessions have shown an increase in concentration, and attention for pupils thus improving learning. Just one session can help pupils identify and manage emotions, build sustainable strategies to manage stress and anxiety, reduce negative thinking and behaviour, and aid self-control. Our sessions also work on social and communication skills, improve positive thinking, confidence and self-esteem.
Relax kids can also offer training for staff on how to incorporate mini Relax Kids sessions into the school day as well as provide a range of resources to support this. Please contact me should you require more information on this.
Investing in your pupils' futures.
The first time children attend a Relax Kids session, they are introduced to simple brain science to have an understanding of how the brain influences our emotions and how we can train our brain in a positive way. Due to Relax Kids's unique 7 steps systems of teaching mindfulness, Relax Kids can fall under a number of budgets such as P.E(sports premium) and pupil premium. I would be happy to discuss this further.
I can offer stand alone sessions to support days like anti bullying week, world mental health day, exams stress or transition days or a 6-week course that can incorporate the school's chosen theme/topic or include our themes like 'Confidence Bootcamp'. I can also do lunch time clubs working with a small group or run after school clubs. I can also come in to offer staff training on how to incorporate Relax Kids in short bursts throughout the school day. Relax Kids can benefit children across all age groups.
If you would like me to come in and show the classroom resources or talk about how Relax Kids classes can benefit your schools, please do get in contact.
