Pure Zen is offering a promotional after school program at the Cresskill elementary school. The program will include teaching techniques associated with mindfulness. In teaching these techniques children will learn how to cope with difficult situations on and off the court or playing field. The goal is to generate a focus and commitment from the Cresskill students that will translate to success in the classroom and in sports. Mindfulness teachings is well documented in professional sports and was a big contributing factor to Phil Jackson's Bulls, and Lakers championship teams. It is my belief that a child not only can benefit more from these teachings but also learn it quicker and utilize it more effectively.
Pure Zen offers the following:
Our mentorship program will instill confidence and determination in the youngsters associated with the program. It will also give them insight to handle social situations with awareness and presence. Our goal is to impact each child in a way that allows them to maximize their potential in life and in sports.
