Our school programmes include whole class sessions, small group interventions and therapeutic one-to-ones for children with special educational needs.
At the moment we are working with schools and nurseries in St Helens and Wigan. Some of the schools we work with aim for the whole school to experience yoga and mindfulness in 6-week blocks, others are targeting particular classes that benefit from the additional support. Some schools have engaged us to work with one or two pupils who are experiencing yoga as a therapeutic intervention, providing them with extra help in expressing and moving through ‘big’ emotions.
Whatever your school’s needs, we are happy to discuss how we can support your children with yoga and mindfulness. All of our sessions are tailored to the group or child’s needs and abilities. Staff are invited to experience the benefits alongside their classes and are also given tools to take back with them to use with the children. With a little practice, overtime, these tools help to improve focus at school and bring calmness to the classroom.
Resilient Kids is new service available for schools in Wigan and St Helens from September 2019. Developed by Sparkling Kids founder, Jane Bennett, alongside colleague and Play Therapist, Yvonne Parr, it is a specialist group therapy programme for mainstream primary-aged children combining play and creative therapies with yoga and mindfulness.
