Jaime's Fantastically Fun Yoga & Mindfulness

The Owl and The Guard Dog | Zen Den Mindful Meditation

A fun explanation of one of the key principles in mindfulness and happiness.
Jaime tells a story from a childhood math lesson, to illustrate how the amygdala (our ‘guard dog’) can be so good at protecting us – a little TOO good – that it stops the thinking part of our brain (our ‘owl’ – the pre-frontal cortex) from doing its work!
Designed to help kids aged 5+ start to understand mindfulness.
