In June 2017 SNAC funded 3 inclusive Relax Kids sessions in the Glasgow area. Relax Kids is based on ‘7 steps’ of move; play; stretch; feel; breathe; believe; relax. The steps include games, yoga stretching, peer massage (optional), breathing techniques, positive affirmations and relaxation. The aim is to teach children techniques they can use to help them cope with their JIA journey.
The children particularly enjoyed making Mind Jars, playing games, breathing exercises and making new friends.
Thank you to Drew and Emma for supporting these sessions, Elaine Cavana (Relax Kids Coach) and all our amazing fundraisers helping SNAC fund events like this one!
