The Mindfulness In Education program by Eline Snel is designed for parents, school teachers, educators, psychologists and carers of children and teenagers.

This training will give you the opportunity to develop an awareness and understanding of your own feelings, thoughts and emotions, while they are occurring, as well as the ones of your children/students. It will allow you to develop the ability to identify your own patterns, automatic behaviors, and gently redirect them into a conscious, kind and non judgemental response to have more meaningful connections with your children/students.

The program is based on the method developed by the Dutch Mindfulness Trainer and author of the book “Sitting Still like a Frog®”. The children’s programs "Mindfulness Matters®" are internationally recognized with measurable impacts on the lives of thousands of kids and teens.

Testimonials:

format_quote Sandra knows how to bond with children, therefore the students were curious and receptive during her classes, actively participating in the activities she has run. In addition to her professional skills, we thank her for her energy, willingness to convey mindful skills, her patience and pedagogy. The parents of the children, to whom she regularly transmitted summaries of the themes worked in class, as well as the teaching team, fully enjoyed the collaboration with Sandra. Sandra Born is professional and dedicated.

AC, Director of La Chouette Ecole, Hong Kong, May 2018

format_quote Based on the method of mindfulness developed by Eline Snel, Sandra always knew how to lead the sessions by being benevolent and reassuring with the children. She established a climate of listening and calm in the groups, which allowed for open dialogue with the children. Every child has always been able to express himself and explain what he felt, what he loved. The themes allowed children to learn to concentrate, to listen to the boundaries of their bodies and others. They were very enthusiastic at each session and regularly continue to do exercises during the week in the classroom.
