Little SunshineMindfulness & Yoga
Taken directly from our school based sessions, which are in high demand due to the content, structure and measurable benefits noted by teachers. We have created a series of mindfulness sessions for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Our fun, engaging and interactive mindfulness sessions can be downloaded here. The activities include mindfulness, creative and self-esteem activities. The benefits include improved self-esteem, resilience, communication, positive relationships, and reduced stress.
Our aim is to provide pupils and teaching staff with life-long tools that support health and well-being in the school environment. This includes helping children deal with their emotions building resilience, positive relationships, self-confidence, concentration, whilst reducing stress and anxiety. With these strategies in place children’s learning, focus and cognitive development is improved. Membership to access a wealth of resources is now available.
Many of our children are under daily pressures, such as social media, peer pressure, meeting specific academic targets, and sometimes difficulties in their home life. As teachers, it is partly our responsibility to support children’s emotional development in the classroom.
One to one or group adult mindfulness sessions are held in Liverpool, along with workplace workshops. The focus on a range of mindfulness strategies that will improve your self-awareness, resilience, relationships and compassion.
Hello and Welcome
My name is Katie, the founder and creator of Little Sunshine Mindfulness & Yoga. I have worked with children for over 20 years and within several childcare settings. My qualifications include NVQ Level 4 in Childcare & Education along with a Primary Teaching Degree with Early Years a specialism. I have also trained in Hatha Yoga, Beyoga children’s mindfulness/yoga and received a Mindfulness diploma.
My journey began when I started practicing yoga in 2011, I quickly began to realise how focusing on the breath during yoga and practicing meditation quietened my mind, developed my awareness, creativity and intuition. I became much calmer; it improved my resilience and positivity, and this had a huge impact on my overall wellbeing. This encouraged me to want to learn more, so I began reading inspirational books, and practicing meditation and mindfulness. As I began to develop my knowledge, I wanted to share my journey and experience with others.
I am extremely passionate about teaching mindfulness and meditation. It is evident that the younger we teach children how to deal with their emotions, the less children will suffer with insecurities and low self-esteem in later years. Together we can make a positive change!
