Bio of Presenter - Una Curran
Una Curran teaches Mindfulness and Well-being to children, teenagers and adults in a variety of settings. Una is a parent to three children and her background is in Primary schools as a classroom teacher in London, Support teacher with children with social, emotional and behaviour needs in Dublin 8, supporting children on a 1:1 in pre-schools and in her own Well-being therapy room. Una taught and cared for many children with special needs over the years.
The programme Una offers to Pre-schools, Primary & Secondary schools, Community groups is based on her teaching experience in a variety of educational settings, being a parent and her professional training over many years. Una has found that within a class some children need movement and some need stillness as our sensory bodies are all unique. By teaching different techniques each child should learn a technique that helps calm their own body and mind. Her is to plant the seeds of well-being early and that children will use the techniques independently when they need it in school and out of school.
