This summer, we're celebrating #MindfulMondays with Movement & Mindfulness! Our facilitator, Heidi Whent, has designed seven weeks of Mindfulness for the whole family. Each week will focus on a different theme and area of the body.

Here are the weekly themes:
Week One (July 6): Trust
We will be exploring the theme of Trust in today’s practice. Let’s grow our roots deep and get connected to the earth. To build a healthy mind and body, we require trust and love. Our movement today will be focused on grounding through our feet and legs while connecting with each other.
Week Two (July 13): Emotions
We will be exploring the theme of Emotions in today’s practice. We have many emotions which all look, and feel very different. Using movement in the shape of water, we will flow like a river. River’s can be wild and calm, can you flow like a river?
Week Three (July 20): Strength
We will be exploring the theme of Strength in today’s session. Let’s challenge ourselves with movement that brings heat and fire. To grow strong we require patience, so we will focus on connecting our breath with our actions.
Week Four (July 27): Friendship
We will be exploring the theme of Friendship in today’s practice. Connection with our family, friends and care givers is so much fun. Let’s get adventurous together making shapes and opening our heart.
Week Five (August 3): Creativity
We will be exploring the theme of Creativity in today’s practice. By using our voices and bodies we will get creative with sound and movement. Be prepared to ROAR!
Week Six (August 10): Listening
We will be exploring the theme of Listening in today’s session. We will be listening with our ears but also our eyes by practicing movement through mirroring one another. This is a beautiful exercise where we connect with each other through our eyes and bodies.
Week Seven (August 17): Peace
We will be exploring the theme of Peace in today’s practice. Let’s get curious about our inner universe through a guided meditation to find peace, quiet and rest.
