We believe early intervention is key

Primary and Childcare professional development

We seek to inspire and support fundamental changes in the health and wellbeing practices within early childhood and primary classrooms.

Training and supporting Principals, Early Childhood Managers and their staff is pivotal to our work.

Research shows that weaving just minutes of Yoga (mindful movement), Breath and Mindfulness into every school day helps our children establish a health and wellbeing foundation - Tools for Life.

Each day they gather resources to help navigate their way through our fast-changing and unpredictable world, and to support them living positive, content and thriving lives.

Learn how yoga and mindfulness supports the myriad of mental health challenges faced by teachers and students.
