Quotes from pupils

I like mindfulness because it helps me feel better and teaches me to concentrate.

I think if everybody knew how to do mindfulness there wouldn’t be that much killing and fighting over little things. Mindfulness is very good for kids and adults.

After mindfulness today, they were so focused in music. They’re never like that in music.

The mindfulness classes are really good for me. I am under a lot of stress and they cool me out and then I am much better for my students
