Event description
Make a difference in your Early Learning and Primary School education with practical, evidence-informed mindfulness and movement techniques.

About this event

If you work with children, you'll know that sitting still is not always an option.

This is where Mindful Movement Brain Breaks can help you change the classroom dynamics and:

  • support learning ready states ('lighting up the brain')
  • foster social emotional learning
  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • help with transitions
  • regulate behaviour
  • and much more

*Held at Edith Cowan University, School of Education, Mt. Lawley*

Developed by Australian Teachers with feedback from Australian Schools, this Professional Development Workshop, will empower you with mindfulness and movement practices to support your and your students’ physical, mental, emotional, and social health and wellness. One breath at a time.

Designed for the Early Years (mat-work) and Primary School classroom (chair-based), we'll discover how to use mindfulness and movement to help growing bodies and minds stretch and strengthen.

With lots of practice opportunities during this one-day course, you'll leave this workshop confident to bring breathing, movement and relaxation into your classroom the very next day.
