The Yoga Classes
There are 2 lengths of classes: 10 minute classes that are designed to be used at any point in the day and 20 minute classes that are part of a series and suitable to be used within a Physical Education lesson.
The shorter individual classes are split into different categories: Energising, Relaxing and Focussing classes – each have specific learning outcomes that allow the teacher to choose a class appropriate for the moment. For example, a 10 minute energising class to get the children ready for learning in the afternoon, or a focusing class after a period of lighthearted play that might have left the class slightly dizzy with excitement!
The longer classes are designed to be used as a series – 1 to 6 – with each class building on the previous, as the children’s and teacher’s experience grow. Use these as a sequence but feel free to repeat classes more than once!
In this series of 6 classes we will progress through the basics of sitting, breathing, the sun sequence, some standing poses and balances, some seated postures and relaxation. We will focus on good posture when sitting and standing, how to relax and why, better breathing, balancing and focus. You might like to try each class several times before moving on.
Series 2 coming soon and Series 3 are coming soon!
10 minute energising classes that will get your class and children awake, energised and ready to learn! These classes are great for your kids to stretch, breathe and get revitalised for their next part of the day!
Help you children focus with these quick 10 minute classes that run through various breathing and balancing poses. These are great classes to use to get your students and kids ready for an effective session of study or simply help them regain focus and concentration.
After a stimulating or tiring day it is great to give yourself time to completely relax. Yoga promotes strength and flexibility but also helps us stay calm and happy. These 10 minute classes will give your kids great relaxation techniques promoting a calm, healthy and happy mind.
I have loved doing the yoga and so have the teachers and lots of the children have been talking about it. Thank you and well done on such a unique idea which works. – Nicki Guest, PE Coordinator, Gorran School
