About the event

At New Beginnings we are passionate about educating and promoting wellbeing in children from an early age. We use fun interactive and engaging tools, games and activities in the Wellness zone, to get them excited and keen to live healthy and well lives.

We shall run two yoga sessions throughout the day: Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children. Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children. Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behaviour, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.

We shall also have one box fit session in the day: as this is an excellent way for children to stay active.  It adds variety to their usual sports activity.  The benefits are as follows:

Focus: concentration is required and it can be physically demanding.  Physically active children tend to concentrate better when facing challenges.

Physical development: mobility, balance, hand/eye coordination and general fitness.

Confidence and Social Development: Children will be training in teams or in pairs.  This helps to develop confidence as well as their social and interactive skills.

Also, we shall have a Mindfulness Colouring Activity:

Mindfulness and meditation are powerful tools we can use when coping with the inevitable strains and stresses of life, and there are simple ways for children to learn to quieten their minds. We think a great way to try this out is with mindful colouring for kids.

Art activities are a fantastic way to encourage children to be thoughtful and expressive. Children and adults can focus their minds to the present moment without much effort, just by working on arts and crafts which require some concentration.

We shall also be joined by two fantastic guys Jason and Chris, who own aerial, visual, innovations limited Avil for short.

The meta verse is becoming more popular and we want to show people it’s capabilities not only for fun and games, but for health, fitness, wellness and socialising.
