Yoga In Schools

“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world in one generation” ~ Dalai Lama

Our wellbeing programs are designed specifically for 5-12 year olds to enhance their personal power, encourage self-belief and build strong healthy bodies and minds.  We believe that yoga and mindfulness classes should have a lasting impact and the skills kids learn can be taken off the mat, into the classroom and everyday life.

For school and after school care we offer 7-10 week yoga and mindfulness programs, each term has a specific focus and each class feeds into the main intention of the term.  This approach ensures that we see development within the children as the term progresses.

Our programs support the Connect, Succeed and Thrive components of The Wellbeing Framework for Schools.

They also assist in developing the five essential skills of the PDHPE syllabus.  Specifically our programs target the following strands:

  • Active Lifestyle
  • Games & Sport
  • Growth & Development
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Personal Health Choices

Classes include mindfulness practices, breathing exercises, adapted Hatha yoga poses, yoga therapy movements, yoga games, affirmations, reflections, meditation and relaxation.

We educate the children on the poses and yoga therapy movements we use to develop their understanding of how their body works.  The class set-up provides a comfortable and safe environment for kids to experience their emotional and mental sensations during practice. There is a focus on calming and relaxing techniques enabling the kids to focus and self-regulate their emotions.

One-off classes for special school events or vacation care are also available.  These classes are specifically designed for your event.

All equipment is provided and no previous experience is required.
