“ You can’t stop the waves but you can learn how to surf ” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness service came to exist after years of Mary-Noah's training and observations. After more than a decade as a school teacher, being a mother, getting involved in various communities and seeing through her passion for improving children's well-being, she realized that children and youth need more sustainable services to support their mental health.
Mindfulness Services is a social enterprise that is an addition to what is already there. It's to bridge gaps in accessibility to services.
Today, teaching emotional intelligence is crucial in schools, cultural communities and organizations working with children who experience academic setbacks, social interaction challenges and behavioural issues. The positive impact of Mindfulness is now well supported in many organizations as it has many scientific shreds of evidence to back it up, and Emotional Intelligence is a skill many companies research in their employees these days. The combination of both increases the likelihood of success. In fact, it is valid for the person who takes my training and the child or youth in my coaching program.
Early Learning and Child Services
Full-time and part-time preschool programs for children aged 2.5 to 5 years. Choosing quality child care and preschool services for your family is a very important decision.
You want to find a safe, healthy environment that supports the social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional development of your children.
Stress and Anxiety Management
Overloaded with schoolwork, extracurricular activities, responsibilities and expectations, children are busy and stressed out. Imagine the value of giving your child the gift of learning how to meditate, providing him/her with the tools, knowledge and ability to self-regulate and concentrate in response to stressful, challenging situations a healthy and positive ways. If this sound like something you and your child can benefit from, save a spot in the upcoming group program.

Merci Mary-Noah pour tes cours de méditation privée avec notre Akymie! Sans toi on l’aurait probablement perdu en raison de la dépression causée par l’intimidation. Elle se porte beaucoup mieux grâce à toi et tes sessions de pleine conscience. Elle a hâte de commencer sa nouvelle école à la fin de l'été.
