Testimonials from schools
Kilronan Special Needs School
Calm Confident Kids is a wonderful programme that our students look forward to each week. Our children have pushed themselves beyond our and their parents expectations, having a mixed ability class usually proves difficult to control but this is not the case with this class. We have implemented the class teachings into our own classes and the benefit is that we have wonderful, relaxed and positive students.
We invited Calm Confident Kids to trail with us for 6 weeks, we had to have them back each and every term because parents and teachers noticed a huge difference in the mental attitudes of our children who participated in the course. We have a Calm Confident Kids class in every year!
Holy Family PS
What can we say about CCK, they are fabulous!! They bring relaxation, awareness and positivity to our children, we absolutely love our PE lessons which are filled with wonderful stories that keep our children entertained for the whole 60 minutes J
Testimonials from Parents
I brought my daughter to the kids class and to be very honest I did not expect the change that I have witnessed. My daughter would become so stressed out that a melt down was a daily occurrence for her, since joining the class she now uses her breath to help her blow out the green meanies. I would highly recommend Helen and Elaine, they are wonderful instructors who genuinely want to help kids. – Stephanie from Belfast
My 2 children are home schooled and have never been in a class setting before, I worried about bringing them to kids yoga but my fears left as soon as I met the Instructors. They putting both my children at ease and they let me stay to watch the class, I was so jealous that I was not a kid as the adventure they went on was great, they were moving from mountains, to trees, to all sorts of animals. Amazing class for kids. – Seanin
Alex suffers really bad anxiety and I thought that bringing him to kids yoga would help him cope, WOW! It was so much more, by the 3rd week Alex was really getting into the stretches and breathing, I started noticing that when he took control of his emotions by breathing and repeating the positive affirmations he learnt in the class. He still suffers with anxiety but I have to be honest and say that the attacks are much less frequent and I believe that Calm Confident Kids has helped him greatly. – Geraldline McCann
I thought that yoga would help my daughter to get her in exercise, I worry about her weight and her self confidence as she is slightly overweight and kids can be pretty mean to her. Immediately she was put at ease by Helen and she had a great time at the class, we had only booked 1 class because my daughter doesn’t usually go back after the first one, however this was a different story, she LOVED it!! At the start of the class all the kids have to repeat the promises and this has made a huge difference to how she see’s herself and how the other kids have responded to her! I cant thank Calm Confident Kids enough as they have given my daughter knowledge that we are all different but equally as beautiful – Margaret Given
CCK rock, my son who is autistic loves this class. Saul looks forward to it each week, there is not many courses that are available to him but this is one is definitely his favourite J
Calm Confident Kids Instructors
Sarah – I thought I was going to be teaching yoga and mindfulness to school kids, wasn’t I in for a shock.. I have watched children who can not say anything positive about themselves in week 1 to children who are full of awareness about their uniqueness by week 6! Its such a blessing to be part of these children’s journeys.
Alexis – having been a primary school teacher for 30 years I missed teaching kids and when I was presented with the opportunity to become a calm confident kids instructor I jumped at the chance. The structure of my lessons keep each child hanging on to my every word.. parents love collecting their children from my class because they are so chilled and relaxed.
Noeleen – I am a yoga instructor, baby massage therapist, reflexologist and children’s reflexologist and I decided that I would train in Kids yoga. I was not expecting to have such a profound effect on little yogis, their commitment and drive still amazes me. I love my kids and I am so very proud to be part of their journey. I have to admit that the meditation is my classes favourite, I love the energy in the room once they all relax.
Helen – Being a director, trainer and an instructor for Calm Confident Kids has given me the tools that I need to help empower children from an early age, I believe whole heartedly children need to learn to be still in today’s busy world. I teach in all my class that “the now” is the most important gift that we can give to ourselves and each other. Yoga, mindfulness, relaxation and meditation has made a huge difference to my life and I am so thankful that I can teach others to will teach children how to just be!
