Mallika is an elementary school teacher who has worked at international schools in Singapore for over 11 years. Her background was originally in the insurance industry, but she soon realised that her passion lay in teaching. What she has come to realise since starting her own practice of mindfulness, is that children are taught all the academic skills they need but there also needs to be a focus on the life skills of resilience, managing stress and increasing concentration and attention. Mallika feels that mindfulness is needed by young people and adults today, especially in our content-saturated world of technology. Learning mindfulness skills, which can be applied every day, can bring greater clarity and peace of mind.
