Mind and Body

Breathe, meditate and stretch your way to a calm and focused classroom!

RECOMMENDED FOR YEAR 1 - YEAR 6, SPECIAL DEVELOPMENTAL SCHOOLS AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Mind and body is all about connecting with yourself.

Healthy minds and healthy bodies lead to a greater ability to learn and grow. Research increasingly shows that equipping students with techniques to manage stress and calm their minds contributes to a more focussed and productive classroom. This incursion guides students through breathing techniques that regulate emotions and, improve concentration and energy levels, via age appropriate stories, songs and games. They will also learn basic yoga poses to increase strength, coordination and flexibility with a take home memento to encourage the continuing practice of these skills.

 Throughout this incursion students will:

  • Learn about strategies to improve their own physical strength & flexibility in new and engaging ways
  • Gain new skills to assist them with improving their concentration and focus
  • Learn how breathing and relaxation can assist them to regulate their own emotions and become more mindful
  • ALL have the opportunity to build on self-esteem and self-belief, something we know is imperative to students' academic, physical and social development
  • Benefit from building social confidence when working with their peers in a non-competitive and positive environment.

This session isn't just for the students either, our Mind & Body incursion is an excellent professional development for teachers wishing to create a calm, open, energised, inspiring and positive classroom. Skills gained from Mind & Body can help develop positive and effective approaches to classroom management.

The Mind and Body incursion can easily be tailored to suit the needs of students from Year 1 - Year 6. Modifications to the session can also be made for students with physical or learning difficulties and to suit any topic, theme, curriculum link or special event taking place at your school.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Absolutely all students were fully engaged. The Instructor was amazing and he did so well managing the students and ensuring they took out the most out of your program. THANK YOU!

Ilim College, Glenroy

All of the grade fours loved the Billy Carts incursion today! Andy was a great presenter and the students thoroughly enjoyed all of the rotations. They consolidated their learning in a fun and interactive way! I have written a blog post for my class blog about the incursion if you'd like to look at it http://missjordan.global2.vic.edu.au/2014/11/21/billy-carts-incursion/ Thanks for organising the incursion for us!

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Brent who came to our school earlier this week to do the Billy Cart Incursion. Brent your enthusiasm was infectious and the students absolutely loved the four experiences you set out. The majority of students had never heard of a billy cart, let alone had the opportunity to ride on one, so this was a massive thrill for them. The feedback from all of the teachers involved was positive and they noted how well you explained the ins and outs of a billy cart to the students. In addition, your detailed explanation of how each of the four stations would work allowed students a smooth transition from one activity to the next. Thanks so much, we will definitely look to use you again in the future and will spread the word where possible.
