Mindfulness based living course for young adults (MBlc-ya)Curriculum for 11-18 year olds.
This course is designed to be delivered in the classroom as part of the PSHE curriculum, each session lasting from 40 minutes to an hour.
These courses can also be offered as extra curricular activity after or before school. They are fun, enaging and include the use of power point videos and slides as well as breathing exercises, often know as meditation. Each is flexible and inclusive for all and will meet the needs of the children, their developmental ages and stages. The lessons offer a safe space for the children to explore and become their own ‘curious researcher’ of their thoughts and feelings and behaviours!
Research shows young people who are disaffected with school (and perhaps consequently, misbehave and become disruptive) often don’t feel seen, heard, felt or respected. These courses offer each student to experience a time when they do, due to the content and format of the lessons. Further educating students in learning to take responsibility for themselves, making better decisions.

“Mindfulness training with adolescents has been positively associated, amongst other things, with ability to sustain attention, empathy, clarity, resilience, inclusive attitude, academic attainment, stress-management and emotion regulation. It has also been associated with reduced reactivity, impulsivity, angry/hostile behaviour, perceived stress and rumination.” Heather Grace Bond
