Mettaminds supported over 18 different schools in running the Mettastart program. The program incorporates a series of Tai chi movements and breathing exercises that are practiced for up to 10 minutes at the start of the day or at a time that suits.
Mettaminds held there first session and will continue to offer the service for a further 5 sessions.
Lee Sanders, School Partnership Manager at Streetly Academy explained that "The session covered some fantastic strategies around breathing and focus that could be used with both staff and student wellbeing".
The program will continue to run as a pilot and will hopefully be offered to other schools as we develop an online platform.
