For Young Mindfulness Adventurers
Above are insightful Primary Teacher Introduction- Thank you!.
As Founding Principal of an Educate Together National School I can definitively say adding 5 mins of Mindfulness throughout our active learning routine has worked wonders! Creating a fun way to get ready to start concentrated learning or when moving from busy active time to calm focus time. The little practices are engaging & fun. Best of all for schools these mindful moments help boost children's well-being & health whilst reducing worries & anxiety! As we are still new adventurers we only have 2 short audio practices. However, I have included fantastic, free sites links for you to explore...- gozen.com/category/mindfulness-meditation/ & www.shambhala.com/sittingstilllikeafrog/ &

As a busy Principal I am always so heartened by the sheer generosity of teachers!
Here is a fantastic As Gaeilge Keeping Active video during Covid 19 - hosted by Ciarán from (Óga Yoga)... Sin é go hiontach ar fád! - Mile buíochas! I highly recommend Óga Yoga TV. https://rtejr.rte.ie/rtejr-blog/yoga/2016/05/twigin-yoga-episode-1-an-crann-2/
Additionally, Niall Breslin is hosting Kids Mindfulness classes 5pm - Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays. It is inspiring to see how people come together during immense times of difficulty to simply share & care. This makes all the difference!
