Impact A Generation

Research shows mindfulness to be an effective antidote to the physical, mental and social impacts of our modern world.

You will learn paradigm changing concepts as well as how to integrate simple exercises, activities and stories to into daily routines.

Mindful kids coach course trains you to deliver mindfulness to kids in an engaging, practical and effective way.

Designed for children aged 4-12, Ovio’s simple, fun exercises enable kids to learn to aim and sustain attention, regulate behaviour, make good choices and form healthy relationships.

 

In creating our programme for kids, we knew it had to be simple, easy to implement and engaging. Key teachings and concepts are cleverly simplified onto concept, activity and story cards. Each card is designed to teach children a valuable life skill. The cards can be used individually to teach bite-sized lessons as the need arises or they can be grouped together for a structured mindfulness session.

The teachings are split into four different categories.

ATTENTION SKILLS

In our fast-paced, digitally dependent world it is crucial that children learn to focus and sustain their attention in order to live a life of fulfilment.

BALANCE SKILLS

A child’s ability to regulate emotions and control their own behaviour is vital in order to live a balanced grounded and productive life.

CONNECTION SKILLS

Being able to form healthy sustainable bonds and show active concern for others is a critical life skill.

PERCEPTION SKILLS

These cards are used to enhancing children’s ability of perspective taking and decision making thus enabling them to live with empathy and meaning.

WHAT KIDS ARE SAYING

“I was always getting told off for not paying attention…Ovio Mindfulness taught me how to pay attention.”

“Now when I feel angry I can stop and breathe before I do something stupid.”

“I find it easier to make friends”

“Sometimes my parents argue and I show them how mindfulness can help”

“I was losing my tennis match so badly that I stopped and did a mindfulness exercise so I could clear my mind. I went on to win the game.”

“Now when I get anxious I know why. Sometimes I look at my mindful jar or focus on my breathing and it’s not such a big deal anymore.”

“When I am angry, I ground myself and it calms me down.”

“Being grateful makes me feel happier about my life”

“In 2015 we had the privilege of introducing Mindfulness to the students through the excellent leadership of Cheryl Strawbridge. She was able to connect with students of all ages and presented the concepts in an accessible and understanding manner. Cheryl also presented very successfully to a group of parents and daughters, many of whom have followed up further with her. I unreservedly commend Cheryl and her Mindfulness programs to you and am happy to speak further if requested.”
– Words from Jenny Williams, Principal Samuel Marsden Collegiate
