Sitting Still Like a Frog Online Course with Eline Snel

Kids take to mindful awareness naturally, even enthusiastically, as soon as they see how it works. If you’re a parent, teacher, therapist—or anyone who works with kids—this online course will give you the skills you need to introduce the youngsters in your world to mindfulness and its many benefits. Renowned author and mindfulness trainer Eline Snel offers simple, playful ways to introduce kids to the basics. When children learn to be mindfully present, they’ll have the tools they need to deal with stress, sleep better at night, improve concentration, learn better at school, and handle difficult emotions for a lifetime. The practical techniques Eline teaches will enable you to help kids cultivate presence of mind and body at home and in the classroom and develop more compassion for themselves and for others. In helping the kids in your life cultivate these qualities, you can receive these benefits as well.
