I currently run a number of sessions in schools and nurseries across Nottingham & Derby, including nurture groups, after school activities, lunchtime classes and one off workshops. Classes can be tailored to support your current curricular themes or to support events such as Earth Day, International Yoga Day, or calendar events such as Christmas, Divali etc. I am fully insured with paediatric first aid certification and enhanced portable DBS. Please get in touch for more information.
Relax Kids was created in 2000 by Marneta Viegas with one goal - to help children feel happier, more positive and believe in themselves.
As a Relax Kids coach I believe that every child has a right to feel calm and confident and the classes have been designed to help make a positive difference to children's lives.
RK uses a unique right brained integration approach to relaxation and mindfulness which set us apart as we use creative and imaginative body-based techniques and resources within our 7-step relaxation system.
The Relax Kids mission is to give children and young people the tools they need to help them manage stress and anxiety and to be more resourceful when facing the challenges of daily life.
Classes can be run as one off workshops, half term blocks supporting a curricular theme or to address issues such as confidence, SATs or exam anxiety, as Chill Skills Session for older children, Magical Adventures for nurture groups and clubs and Little Stars for nurseries. I am able to work on a one to one basis, with small groups or whole classes.
I am also available for staff taster sessions or staff relaxation workshops.
The teen years are a huge time of change ...the transition from a dependent child to an independent young adult. This is a turbulent time with big changes happening, physically, mentally and emotionally. The ChargeUp! programme comprises of lessons that focus on helping teens understand and manage their emotional and mental health and wellbeing. covers a wide range of topics from self-awareness, sleep hygiene, to consent and boundaries and stress management.The sessions follow a 7 step system that includes interesting activities, exercises and games to encourage learning, skill acquisition and reinforcement of concepts. Activities provoke teenagers to think about a range of life skills; from self-awareness, sleep, hygiene, to consent and boundaries and stress management. ChargeUp! can help develop self-esteem, resilience and assertiveness whilst giving plenty of opportunity for discussion and participation.
Sessions can be held as one off workshops or blocks, on a one to one basis, small groups or whole classes.
I am also able to offer parents only or parent child workshops as an out of school activity. These sessions help parents understand the neuroscience behind the changes and learn strategies to support their young people.
