At Aumio, we believe that mental health should be considered from an early age on. With the methods taught by Aumio, children can strengthen the awareness of their mental and physical well-being. In doing so, children help themselves in the here and now and learn for the future. Because sustainable well-being requires the right preventive care, for all of us.
Aumio was developed with children for children between the ages of 3 and 12. Some stories are aimed at pre-school children, while other stories and everyday examples are aimed at children of primary school age and up to grade 6. However, this does not exclude older children. The easiest way to find out if and how Aumio works in your class is to try it out for yourself.
Aumio can be integrated into everyday school life in various ways: At the beginning or end of class, in phase changes in your lessons, in physical education, or in your mindfulness or yoga club. One exercise lasts between 5 and 10 minutes. Having a routine is very important for a functioning mindfulness practice. So it is best to determine for yourself and your students when and where you will meditate together on a regular basis.
Our school pack will provide you with a practice plan and with a list of exercises to help you get started with Aumio. The exercises from the introduction course are the most suitable. However, you can also choose exercises from other topics. It is best to assess for yourself which topics are of interest to your class and how well your students are already familiar with mindfulness techniques.
Home schooling presents a whole new set of challenges for teachers and students. Aumio as a digital tool is ideal for home schooling or as a stand-alone relaxation between lessons. You can recommend Aumio as an app to parents and students.
With an annual or monthly Aumio subscription, you can download all content to your device and listen offline. You can also download complete courses. The best thing to do is to download the exercises to your smartphone or tablet when you are preparing your lessons.
Mindfulness exercises should not be mandatory. If a child does not want to participate, that is okay. It is best to ask the student to stay quiet during the exercise in order not to disturb the other children. Perhaps an alternative task that the student can do during the exercise will help.
