Mindfulness at Eastwood

Relaxation techniques, breathing exercises
and slow, deliberate movements

Students in mindfulness sessions may be found seated in EIS’s garden or working on mats in the multipurpose room. There, students may engage in relaxation techniques, such as controlled breathing exercises or slow, deliberate movements before getting down to the business of cultivating mindfulness skills and strategies. The mindfulness educator directs students’ attention to the present, providing instruction and guidance on observing a particular sensation of the body or attending to a soothing sound or becoming conscious and aware of a stream of thoughts or feelings.
Once students are firmly engaged in the moment-by-moment experience of the present, students are helped to orient themselves to the thoughts, feelings, or sensations in different ways, deliberately focusing their attention first on one aspect of the experience and then on another. With the support of their mindfulness educator, students practice approaching thoughts and feelings and sensations with curiosity, openness, and without emotional reactivity. Students engaged in these practices are often in silent repose, seated cross-legged or lying down, with their eyes closed.
Mindfulness practices require learners to exercise self-regulation in attending to their thoughts as they arise, adopting different perspectives on those thoughts...

Did you know we offer the PYP in French?

Eastwood offers the PYP in French due to the significance of the French language to Lebanon’s history, culture, and present day affairs, and due to the rise and growth of French on the global stage. Speaking one of the leading languages of business, education, science, technology, commerce and trade is a form of power and access to greater opportunity, and we aim to provide that power and opportunity to students.
