Thank you so much for joining our Shine Tribe! Our mission and purpose is to teach children vital lifelong skills to support their emotional wellbeing. We know that Mental Health is one of the biggest issues facing our children & young people today, with 1 in 7 children between the ages of 4 – 17 having a mental health disorder.
Our Relax Kids classes use the 7-step process to teach children these skills through Move, Play, Stretch, Feel, Breathe, Believe & Relax. These classes are fun, creative and aim to teach children relaxation and mindfulness exercises that they can take with them through life.
