5 parts of practice

lesson outline

 

Seated Practice

We use Mudras to help us look inside of ourselves, gauge how we are feeling, and express it. When we close our eyes and breathe together, we are able to slow our heart rate and relax our muscles. This improves our focus and helps us in making better decisions.

Movement

Sun Salutation is the physical practice of moving your body, mind and breath together. It is important to bring these three realms together to be more present in the body. We use music to help us remember how to move our bodies to connect our body, mind and breath.

Heart of the Lesson

This part will be different for every lesson. Students will work on different mindfulness practices at this time. It may be through breath work, body movement, or a mindfulness exercise. 

Guided Mindfulness

This is a time when students use eye pillows to help relax and release. We use guided mindfulness practices created and recorded by Challenge to Change specifically to help the children use their minds as a tool.

Close of Practice

This part of the mindfulness practice helps the children complete and close all parts they have just learned. The simple words, phrases or songs help with mindfulness, self-esteem, and self-regulation.
