Gifts from us!
Our gifts to your school - for joining our community!
Thank you for trying out our Free Taster Sessions through Shaping Healthy Minds Online. We will keep updating this page with free gifts for you, to give you an idea of the types of yoga and mindfulness resources that we can support your school with through our future 'Online Yoga & Mindfulness Units Programme' - which will be available from September 2020.
Mindful Moments is a unique collection of videos and A5 posters for your classrooms. We are offering you six free videos and accompanying posters (see below for video and pdf download links), each providing short ‘brain breaks’ for the children, such as yoga flows they can do from their desks and fun, calming breathing activities. Mindful Moments will help to re-energise the children in your classroom and can improve attention span, bringing greater focus and calm.
Mindful Moments - FREE Videos & A5 Downloads for Classroom Walls
The below flows (sequences), poses or breathing activities are suitable for all ages but some of them will be better suited for either KS1 or KS2 - for each video below it will state any recommendations where necessary.
