We have introduced a story massage session to our daily routine to calm children at the end of the morning. We use calming music and gentle movements to relax and wind down after a busy nursery day.

Our story area is now set up with pictures from the Cosmic Kids Yoga book (I'm a trained yoga teacher with them) and now I've added fleece blankets and the mindfulness posters downloaded from Nurture in Mind.

Hi everyone, I have just completed reading through the nurture in mind training and I'm excited to compliment some of our mindfulness experiences with these resources. We have been doing yoga daily for a while now and we have recently supported this with the Yoga Bunny story. This is brilliant as it introduces the language of feelings that children might be experiencing. We have also introduced breathing buddies to our routine, having recognised a child's need for him to have his soft toy with him with he feels overwhelmed.

Another great activity which promotes listening is 'Garto' this is a short animated clip about a lizards encounter with nature. We invite the children to lie down with their breathing buddy and eyes closed and listen for sounds of nature. You can find this clip on youtube.

We plan to introduce some of the ideas. We have some great enclosed spaces that will be ideal for introducing mindfulness activities. Thank you for the inspiration.

I am currently training to be a social and emotional well being teacher 'be the jellyfish.' It uses a combination of creative tasks, bodywork, peer massage and visualization. I intend to use this in my setting and offer classes on a Saturday and after school sessions for older children.

We introduced calming muic to help children relax and unwind. We also carry out yoga sessions from cosmic kids which the children really enjoy. Children are given opportunity to have quiet time and rest when needed in the story corner with blankets and pillows. We have also introduce head space app which we on the doors in a morning.
