Recent feedback from pupils has highlighted they want to continue with their breathing techniques and meditations but would struggle to do this on their own! Studio Serenity has a mission to work with as many local schools as possible to train school staff in delivering x3 5 minute meditations a day!
Just 15 minutes per day to help support our children's mental health and well-being! Breathing techniques and meditations can also improve performance and behaviour! Have a look at our blogs and updates which has links to the research in the area.... and if you would like your school to be ahead of the game then lets get started! :-) 

studio serenity workshop and courses timetable. (all available as in-house events).

Having worked with a broad spectrum of pupils including Autism, ADHD, PMLD, SEBD and from my work in schools recently for anxieties, exams and behaviours I know what helpful techniques of mindfulness, meditation and movement that work.

Within the various workshop’s topics, we can work on:

  • Becoming aware of negative thinking patterns and unhelpful thoughts.

  • Becoming aware of the brain and the thought, feeling and behaviour cycle.

  • Cultivating mindfulness in our work and home life and that of the pupils.

  • How to use simple but very effective breathing techniques.

  • Influencing a more positive, physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

  • How to do easy meditations in the classroom and home.

  • Become kind and compassionate to the self and others.

 

These areas are just the start of a person looking after themselves, but they are simple and relatively easy techniques that those in a busy role can learn and that are effective when practiced. I believe that if we take time for ourselves then this will be passed onto those we teach… and the techniques are so simple that children and young people can learn them also!

           

The courses will be up and running from our new premises from Easter and available to book on from 1st March using the new online Wigan Council school service portal. There is a discount offer currently available for £40 per person for a 3-hour workshop for this academic year. From September 2019 the prices of the workshops will increase.
