Mindful Leonora on Tjiwarl Country

In 2021 and 2022 and thanks to the Shire of Leonora and Horizon Power, the Yogazeit Outreach team visited Leonora District High School and the Leinster Early Childhood Centre. The team collaborated with the local community to create a whole school incursion, several community Yoga and Mindfulness classes, and a Professional Development day for the staff and teachers.

“I am strong!” – PP students practicing Mindful Movement ‘Strong Warrior’ shape.

This Mindful Movement Education Projects targeted communities within the Shire of Leonora. With thanks to a community grant from the Shire of Leonora and support from Leinster Community School, we were able to empower body-mind wellness for the Young and Young at Heart with: 

– Free evidence-based trauma-informed Mindful Movement Education (two hour Professional Development Workshop aligned with Australian Curriculum Standards) to schools in the Shire, hosted at Leinster Community School.

– Free Mindful Movement based Whole School Incursion reaching over 100 students from Kindy to High School.

– Free Community Engagement class to connecting members from the community, different ages and different backgrounds: reaching over 40 participants and collectively learning about mindfulness and movement for mental, physical and social health and wellness.

“I like how breathing makes my brain relax.” – Y4 student

After seeing the Mindful Movement (incursion), I can see now how this will be great for my students and for me! And I really liked doing the ‘crow’ shape.
