Available to all subscribers, kids (and their parents) can enjoy fun, engaging activities that teach them the basics of mindfulness. They’ll practice breathing exercises, visualizations and even try some focus-based meditation. Of course, different exercises work best for different ages so we’ve customized the sessions for three age groups: 5 and under, 6-8 and 9-12.
For now, there are five themes for kids to explore:
Teach your child the fundamentals of meditation with simple, fun breathing exercises.
Kids will use their imagination to practice a relaxed, precise kind of focus.
Visualization exercises that will teach your child about openness and generosity.
Help your little one get a good night’s rest with relaxing mindfulness activities.
These quick meditations will help you and your child start the day off right.
“It’s almost as though meditation was designed for kids. They just ‘get it’ – there is this elasticity and freedom in their minds which allows them to be present in the moment and free from any external thoughts or pressures. By introducing meditation and mindfulness at an early age, not only can we build on this and help nurture their mind development, but we are also making meditation simple and accessible.”
