Information for schools/centres

   
Kids Balance offer workshops for nursery and primary pupils.  


Workshops go on for 45 mins (35 mins for nursery age children)

Our Kids Balance sessions consist of our unique 6-steps technique, which takes pupils from a high energy to a low energy balance and co-ordination exercises, relaxation group activities, breathing and mindfulness practices, mindful movements, visualisations, and positive affirmations.

Regular relaxation and mindful movement is particularly useful to counteract exam stress, peer pressure and bullying. Relaxation can help children learn, be more self-aware, listen, concentrate and focus. It can also help their emotional well being as they are more in control of their moods and emotions.


Our simple and unique 6-steps unique technique helps pupils manage their stress, anxieties and worries, promotes confidence,
self-awareness and creativity and gives them tools for life.


Our workshops are also ideal for Friendship week, Anti-bullying week, and Well-being week.

Tips on how to relax your class for teachers  

 Lying down

Make floor space. Have students hold hands and form a circle. When music begins, children drop hands, sit, and lie on their back in place, with feet pointed into center of circle. Arms rest at their sides, feet about one foot apart, eyes closed. Students breathe in and out evenly for the duration of the music, and remain silent and still. When music ends students open their eyes, sit up, stand up, stretch, and continue with their next activity.

 Sitting down

Teacher can announce it is relaxation time, or begin to play the special music that is reserved for relaxation time. Students stop what they are doing; let their arms hang at their sides or rest on their thighs, keeping their eyes open. Students breathe in and out evenly for the duration of the music, and remain silent and still. When music ends students resume their activities.

 Visualisation

Visualization is a powerful tool that is useful for encouraging relaxation. Instruct children to sit quietly and still while closing their eyes.  Tell them to visualise a positive scene, or scenario, such as a favorite fairytale or playing at the park with friends. 


 Toe Tensing

The toe tensing method helps preschoolers to relax by drawing tension out of the body. Instruct children to lie down and wiggle their toes. Tell children to pull, or tense, the toes toward their face, holding for a count of 10. For best results, repeat this exercise approximately five times.

 Colour Therapy

Color therapy is also a useful way to encourage a feeling of relaxation. Instruct children to close their eyes and think of a colour that makes them feel peaceful, relaxed and comfortable. With the eyes remaining closed, have them blowing the colour throughout his body, letting the relaxing color fill his body and relax the mind.
