MINDFULNESS The Breathe Programme is a short 4 lesson course for both Primary and Secondary students

About this event


The breathe programme is a short 4 lesson course that includes simple mindfulness practices with some theory, recent insights into the brain from neuroscience as well as aspects of social and emotional learning.

Through mindfulness, a child can remember what is important to them and establish stronger boundaries. They can be less reactive and know their boundaries and what really deserves their energy and what does not.

A short mindfulness technique can enable a child to be more present when they need to focus (like when they’re taking a test). Presence is key, and mindfulness can teach this practice to children from a young age.

Top Benefits of Mindfulness for Children:

1. Healthy understanding of emotions

2. Increased confidence

3. Greater self-esteem

4. Improved decision making

5. Better sleep

6. Improved focus and concentration

Let Me Be Me'Invest in Youth today for better tomorrow'

While creating the LMBM project we had a one-goal - to allow school students to extend their interests and friends circle while learning new skills. We are offering a variety of creative and social programmes which are evidence-based with excellent results from student’s involvement.

Those programmes were chosen to provide a diversity of new skills for youth. The main objectives are to build confidence, improve social skills and expand knowledge on mental health. Students will benefit from improved personal performance, ability to work in a team, understand themselves, different behaviors and feelings, also new situations and environments and how to deal and adjust to them.

These programmes are run for 4 to 5 weeks period at subsidised rates to enable everyone to benefit.

Please be advised this class is organised online throughout Zoom, computer access is required.
