Dareling Academy is a group for kids and teens (max. 8 kids), to have fun, be quiet, learn new things, be active. Some of the activities that are taught at the Dareling Academy are Relaxation Exercises based on yoga, Artistic Expression, Breathing Techniques and Guided Visualizations.
Relaxation exercises help children to manage their reactions to stress, anxiety and worry. Exercises, based on yoga are a good way to deal with worrying thoughts and reduce tension in the body. Muscle relaxation is also an easy technique to teach children. It involves practicing tensing and relaxing different muscles in the body. This helps children to recognize the difference between tense and relaxed muscles.
Art is FUN, and doing anything that brings joy reduces our stress levels and improves your quality of life. When you make creativity a habit, you continue to learn new, resourceful ways of solving problems in your artwork, and in life. And when you take the time and energy to develop your own ideas, you start respecting your inner nature more and more and are better able to express yourself to the world on a regular basis.
Breathing correctly is not only important for living longer but also to have a good mood and keep performing at your best. Your body is designed to release 70% of its toxins through breathing. If you are not breathing effectively, you are not properly ridding your body of its toxins. In order to breathe properly you need to breathe deeply into your abdomen. Long, deep controlled breaths slow down the breathing rate and help children to relax.
With the guided visualization kids can close their eyes and listen to my voice guiding them through a soothing and calm imaginary scene. They can also make up their own soothing image. For example, this could be a favorite place that makes them feel calm and relaxed. This is a place they can mentally access during moments they feel tense, like before a test or a presentation.
