In the Meditation Lab, students will learn tools and techniques within the physical education curriculum to increase focus and deepen concentration. Through the practice of mindfulness meditation, participants will develop greater self-awareness and strategies to regulate their emotions to navigate the ups and downs of everyday life.
In each session of The Meditation Lab, students are introduced to the practice in a unique way. The lab is held during physical education class. Sessions begin with an introduction, followed by simple stretches to warm the body and quiet the mind, a guided relaxation, a unique meditation with a specific focus, and finally a question/answer period.
