Combining Meditation, Mindfulness and Gratitude with dance
Consciousness for Kids is a Programme for primary schools to deliver as part of their PE lesson.
Never has there been such an important time for our children to be considering both their physical and mental wellbeing. With statistics showing that between 10 and 20 percent of them are experiencing mental health problems at any time, it’s vital that we help them recognise how to maintain a healthy physical and mental lifestyle.
What is Consciousness?
Consciousness is a combination of Mindfulness Meditation and Gratitude set to music, it has some really powerful results. It involves calming down from the usual stresses and emotions we experience in our daily lives, focusing on calmness and stillness, before bouncing back up with invigoration to restore people before the end of the session, finally finishing with the recording of Gratitude.
