“MindUP reinforces the enjoyment and impact of the experience of learning.”
“When I began The Goldie Hawn Foundation in 2003 I knew that I had to do something to remedy the stress and anxiety children were experiencing. Every child deserves an equal chance to thrive, and so together with researchers, scientists, and educators I created the MindUP program.”
Last year, mindful breathing was so important to our class. We kept to a real routine and children were definitely more calm – the whole class really. We had some tricky characters and if it wasn’t for the breathing practice it would have been tricky to bring the class back together after break times.
I would have no hesitation in recommending MindUP to other headteachers, the training and resources provided by the Hawn Foundation is excellent.
