Mindful Moments

The five principles laid out in the book Yoga Calm for Children, are a good way to incorporate mindfulness in schools. Mindful Moments Cards cover a wide range of experience, emotion and imagination. Some help students remember positive events in our lives. Others help students imagine successful futures. All help develop mindfulness, focus and relaxation skills. They can be used with yoga or alone. The cards would work well for a class morning meeting or for a warm-up at the beginning of a lesson or small group session. I use them in my emotion regulation small groups and my class lesson on self-regulation.
