Each introductory mindfulness workshop is one hour long and is comprised of four parts: main ideas, mindfulness practices, movement, and closes with gratitude practices. While each class can be taken separately, it is most beneficial and impactful to take the entire series of classes. The workshops have been designed specifically for 6th-8th grade students.
