"I felt very privileged to be one of the first groups to experience the first mindfulness session as this was a worthwhile experience where for an ephemeral moment, I could take a break from my studies, to clear my mind, my thoughts and just be present."
(IB Diploma Student, International school student, Hong Kong)

"Overall, I loved the session. It really helps me stop all the stress and troubles of IB and to really help me be in the moment."

Testimonials 

“Mindfulness has helped calmed me down and has made me an overall more aware person in general. From mindfulness I now know how to react to some situations e.g. controlling our thought for feeling: when someone bumps into me I need to calm down and assess the situation.”

"Alexa Massingham, from Mind Body Matters, came to Sha Tin College to conduct three different bespoke courses for our students.  Each course was carefully planned, age appropriate and had a wide range of useful examples and tasks to illustrate the principles of mindfulness to the students. I would highly recommend using Mind Body Matters in schools to help all age groups.  For me, Alexa’s sessions stand out amongst other mindfulness sessions I have seen because she is a trained teacher and has many years of experience of working with school age students and knows how to communicate and engage with them." ​​

"I had my first mindfulness session and it was brilliant. It related to my daily life closely in terms of studies and activities etc. I think mindfulness is an important and useful method to help us concentrate better and calm ourselves down so that we can face problems with a peaceful mind and overcome panic situation."

"Alexa taught a course of mindfulness to a whole cohort of year 10 students for their personal and social education lessons at Sha Tin College, Hong Kong. As a teacher I also attended and was inspired by the philosophy of the course and its teachings. Alexa helped us to open and widen our understanding, and to strengthen the connection between mindfulness practice and everyday life, in particular to how we react to every day obstacles and challenges. Her empathy touched me very deeply and she was capable of guiding us through the course but also allowing us to come to our own conclusions about ways of using mindfulness to help us cope with the stressors in our day to day lives. The class felt like a protected, safe place to just be. I learnt that I can be much kinder to myself; I can choose to respond and not always just react."
