Westlake Elementary PTA is partnering with the WES School Counselors to bring the technique of mindfulness to our WES families!
Mindfulness is the ability to focus our mind on our bodies, our thoughts and the world around us. We all possess the ability to achieve mindfulness. Mindfulness is an evidence-based technique for reducing stress, increasing focus and instilling an overall sense of calm to our mind and body.
Through our Mindfulness Mondays program we will introduce a variety of mindful techniques geared towards students and families of all ages. The program features a yoga curriculum, outdoor experiences, and other fun mindfulness activities.
You can access our Mindfulness Monday yoga sessions on the WES PTA YouTube channel.
