Inside Out, Disney Pixar’s award winning animated film and one of the most popular films of 2015, is a fabulous film for introducing the idea of emotions and “the little voices in your head” to children. In addition to that it does a wonderful job of simplifying the changes that everyone experiences when growing up. More importantly than all that, children LOVE it! What could be more fun than treating your class to an Inside Out Mindfulness Lesson?
It is also a wonderful place to begin introducing mindfulness to children. By creating a simple script and teaching the children a few simple breathing techniques, yoga poses and tai chi moves, children can enjoy this wonderful story in a much more calm and relaxed way.
Whether you are new to mindfulness, relaxation and yoga or you are a seasoned yogi and meditator you can access these easy relaxation techniques for yourself and your children and add an element of calm to your working day.
