Mindfulness in Education


Aiming to improve the Classroom experience, mental health and wellbeing of both students and teachers

Mindfulness improves students ability to self-regulate – if we improve students ability to self-regulate, we create optimal conditions for learning and therefore reduce the time spent managing poor behaviour. This has a flow-on effect to teachers’ own health and wellbeing as well as job satisfaction..
