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.

I have been using Supreme incursions for around 7 years. The incursions we have had have been well organized,engaging and show the links with Curriculum areas. Ryan has been a familiar face at St Michaels with the Biily cart and Orienteering incursion. His manner and expertise is outstanding, and his management of the students is extremely effective. Thanks again for another memorable incursion.
