Would you like to join you child and learn different techniques and meditations to help you feel more relaxed, communicate better and feel more connected?
A fun and engaging group parent and child class to calm, relax and empower your connection with each other. Working on many different themes including compassion, communication and love we will use a variety of meditation and relaxation tools to calm and empower your child and increase your connection with your child.
The Inner Space ethos has always been about guiding children to find their own inner space, their inner calm and delivering practical techniques that can be used anywhere to help them find this place of calm and to re balance.
I send home exercises with each Relax Kids class to encourage parents to do the exercises with their children, however it can be hard to find time, and feedback has been that kids can be reluctant to do the exercises outside of class if it’s instigated by a parent!
Children do experience the benefits of doing a class without doing follow up exercises but I see the most progress with children who continue to do the exercises outside of class making it a way of life rather than something they just do at the weekend.
Having taught many private family classes and on occasion inviting parents into a Relax Kids class setting I’ve really enjoyed witnessing the transformation that can occur when a parent steps into a child’s world. It can be very empowering for a child to share this space with their parent and it’s lovely to see everyone relaxing together during the meditations.
This term we will be looking at the monster emotions we ALL experience. Children will explore their different emotions in a fun way, sharing in this way helps us to connect with each other and recognise that we all find it tough sometimes and we can all help each other.
Positive thinking and affirmations are fabulous and can really help but the real power comes when we accept our shadow side, put our hand up and own our emotions and what we do with those big feelings.
Week 1 we will meet all the different emotion monsters. Followed by the worry monster, the anger monster. the fear monster, the sadness monster. Finishing up with enjoying a big Monster Mash and celebration of all the amazing emotions we feel that make us feel loved, happy and at peace.
The techniques you learn will be transferable to home situations and you will receive email guidance and help throughout the course and beyond including a weekly newsletter to remind you of the different exercises and how to apply them to very day life.
