These sessions are designed to be great fun and purposeful. Getting kids thinking and physically moving their bodies simultaneously is so beneficial! Through stories and movement, we work on themes such as being kind, discovering what makes you special, understanding that your actions affect others, managing fear and being brave, being able to stay calm and using deep breathing to think clearly. 

In these unique kids classes, children will:

  • Improve concentration and listening skills

  • Learn strategies for dealing with emotions

  • Grow strong, flexible and healthy bodies

  • Develop confidence and empathy

  • Practice collaboration skills

  • Create focused time for meaningful 
    reflection and mindfulness


"As a teacher, I have seen the benefits that children gain from partaking in the arts and the joy and confidence this gives them. I have also seen an increase in the number of children dealing with mental health issues and believe it to be really important for kids to be taught strategies to deal with life's stresses when they are young, so that they have tools to access throughout their lives. I started movement and mindfulness time with my own daughter, then invited friends’ children to try it… and Physical Stories  was born! I really believe in these classes for children and encourage you to come along and try one out." - Joanne
