"I have committed to engaging my students in mindfulness and yoga at the start of every lesson, since participating at your Workshop at Murdoch Uni.Not only does it provide a space for focus and awareness for my students, but it provides me with the space to explore who I am as a teacher.I have been teaching for about 24 years, so I feel like I know when I have found a good thing! Offering a calm and meditative space for young people to be through the very difficult time of Covid-19 has felt very important. In the last few stressful days of last term, six year 7 students attended my class, four of whom said they hadn’t slept the night before. I led them through a visualisation based on yours where they go through a door. I think you call in “A special Place”. Two of them stayed asleep and one said, “Miss, can we do that every lesson?”. They then drew their happy place."
