Meditation Workshop

Monday 20th January 2020

With the wellbeing of children paramount to our Club, Icon Gymsports is excited to offer a Meditation Workshop as part of our January Holiday Program in 2020. The workshop will focus on mindfulness, yoga and meditation skills and techniques, especially designed for children aged 5-12 qualified facilitators Vicki and Emily from Clear Minded for Life (WWC, First Aid, Yoga & Meditation qualified).

The workshop is based on the science of the brain and teaches children to use their breath to clear their mind and order to enhance their capacity to concentrate in the classroom, at the gym, and in all aspects of their day to day lives. 

Facilitators Vicki and Emily will help learn specific techniques to settle their mind and body so they can sleep better, manage anxious moments and adjust their thinking to reflect joy, confidence and love. The techniques incorporated in this workshop are simple and have been developed through years of teaching children in schools simple ways to find calm, relax and manage stress in themselves or their environment. The 3 hour session will include: 

• Mindfulness exercise
• Understanding breath
• Children’s yoga series
• Deep relaxation
• Visualization exercises
• Walking meditation

Children will be given the opportunity to recap and practice on what we have learnt plus some other techniques designed to empower children and assist with understanding their ability to focus and visualise and how this will help with gym, school, friends, etc.

Children will be provided with a token to take home to help them remember the techniques they have learnt on the day.
