Creative Wellbeing for Children
” Yoga, mindfulness and meditation can be just the antidote children need to the go-go, technology-saturated lives in which they are immersed. Dowdall aims to empower children with techniques that they can use in decision-making and in recognising and coping with different emotions.” – Sheila Wayman, Irish Times Article in the Family and Health Supplement, September 2017.
Mental health is now a priority within school environments. This program tailors to children’s interest, attention span and their natural aptitude for meditation! They experience the benefits of healthy personal awareness, positive self-regard and confidence to express themselves.
