Claire’s Montessori is pleased to announce that starting in the fall of 2018 the school will be including a Wellbeing Curriculum for all students, Empowered Wellbeing For Success®.
This curriculum offers 4 different wellbeing techniques which are scientifically proven to develop focus, clarity, concentration, creativity and positive social, emotional and academic outcomes in students.
The techniques are specifically designed for students in school settings and include: yoga, specialized breathing techniques, mindfulness activities, affirmations and visualization techniques. We are thrilled that included in this Wellbeing Program our faculty have the opportunity for Professional Development as well as they will have access to personal Wellbeing empowerment techniques too.
Here are some snap shots of research as regards students using these techniques.

Brain studies now reveal that thoughts produce the same mental instructions as actions. Mental imagery impacts many cognitive processes in the brain: motor control, attention, perception, planning, and memory. So the brain is getting trained for actual performance during visualization. It’s been found that mental practices can enhance motivation, increase confidence and self-efficacy, improve motor performance, prime your brain for success, and increase states of flow – all relevant to achieving your best life! https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/flourish/200912/seeing-is-believing-the-power-visualization
