MAKING MINDFUL MOVEMENT MATTER
Supporting Youth with Tools for Life
Making Mindful Movement Matter’ is a comprehensive six month program supporting Fremantle’s Youth and their future Health and Wellbeing with the goal to establish a sustainable program in the Community.
The project’s aim is to make a lasting difference to Wellbeing for Youth. With Yoga and Mindfulness Kids and Teens will gain the tools to respond to life’s ups and downs helping them to manage life in a better way. They will learn tools to become self-aware, self-regulate and de-stress (relax and unwind), which will help them not only to become better community members but will empower Youth to become healthier and happier – mentally and physically.
‘Making Mindful Movement Matter’ welcomes all children and teenagers who live in the City of Fremantle (please note that places are limited).
