Our programme M3 uses Māori story telling and simple Movement to teach pre and primary school children simple Mindfulness tools like breath and visualisation. This approach is designed to tackle New Zealand's challenges with mental health and suicide.

Through breath techniques and visualisation, tamariki gain a sense of presence. Each session works with a takeaway theme such as calmness, happiness, peace and gratitude.
We take the strengthening and stretching elements of yoga to teach tamariki connection to body through storytelling.
The telling of our Māori stories and legends enable tamariki to connect to our rich Aotearoa - based culture. A sense of belonging is instilled.
