General goals

Promote mental health in schools through body consciousness

Enhance self care and mindfulness practices

Connecting with the movements of our body can help us to relax muscle tensions while we focus on the sensations of the present, in consequence, you are attentive to the aspects of the life you can control.


This project is addressed to:

  • Students in ages among 10 and 17 years old.
  • Mentors and teachers who want to experience body-mind mindfulness


There is an emotional journal to download which will help us to track feelings and body sensations during the week. Please print it before the week start.
