Relaxation can help concentration skills, listening skills, creativity, self-esteem, mental and physical health.

There are three different programmes addressing the needs of children:
Little Stars 3-5yrs
Young Adventurers 5-9yrs
Chill Skills 10-14yrs
Just Relax 15-18yrs.

Movement

Encourages development of core physical skills, improves coordination, boosts energy and circulation whilst helping release endorphins.

Games & Play

A range of energetic and fun games. The drama-based thought provoking games encourage and promote social skills and awareness. They help build children's confidence, social interaction and communication skills.

Stretching & Balance

A set of stretches are carefully demonstrated and used by the children to lengthen and stretch bodies and so improve postural awareness. These exercises help release physical tension, develop motor skills, body awareness, balance and flexibility.

Massage

These calming exercises promote positive touch and encourage respect, communication and empathy amongst peers. Positive touch calms the nervous system, helps the production of oxytocin and endorphins and lowers stress levels in children.

Breathing

A range of child friendly exercises encourage deep breathing. These exercises help calm the nervous system and children feel the immediate effects whilst being taught how to use these techniques effectively for themselves. Breathing exercises also improve concentration and focus. Regular practise can help the child learn how to control their emotions.

Affirmations

Incorporates a range of games that enable children to confidently use positive affirmations and self-praise. As the children learn to speak positively about themselves endorphins are released producing a feel good factor These enjoyable games and exercises include the use of affirmation cards to encourage the development of positive neurological pathways and promote improved self confidence and self-esteem.

Visualisation

Incorporates relaxation, guided imagery and visualisations through imaginative story telling. This section helps release physical and mental tension and gives children tools to deal with stress. Done regularly, these exercises can help relieve fatigue and promote deeper sleep while improving child anxiety. Improved deep sleep and general relaxation improves concentration, listening skills, and memory retention whilst expanding the child's imagination and creativity.
