Upskill to deliver essential wellbeing tools to pupils,
yourself.

Without the right practical skills to deliver age-appropriate yoga and mindfulness, you risk:

  • Teaching inappropriate poses and techniques (that could be physically harmful)
  • Sharing inappropriate meditation/ relaxation (that could be psychologically harmful)
  • Remaining uncertain around teaching wellbeing tools and techniques (so hinder raising pupil wellbeing)
  • Not adding all-important wellbeing CPD training to your CV!

All you need is a step-by-step approach to teach the right type of mindful movement, that is age appropriate and beneficial; to upskill in your own time, empower you in the classroom, boost your credentials and raise school wellbeing.

Children's yoga teacher and pupil

Amanda Simons - Primary School Teacher

After finishing the Class Yoga training course, I was keen to get started in school straight away, so letters went home to explain the benefits! It was a hit from the start, and being a boy heavy Year 5 group, it was great to see their involvement in everything we did. We had a session a week, which really helped develop my confidence and practise keeping the flow of the lessons going. My super parallel class teacher was fully on board and I taught her class a couple of sessions too. Some children began asking when the next session was! It was also nice to see girls, who were slightly reluctant to join in team sports lessons, really enjoying it and taking part.Thank you to Helen and Class Yoga for starting me on this new journey.

Despite having taught a range of Primary aged children for many years, I have never had the confidence to bring my yoga practice into the classroom. Helen’s clear teaching and the great course content, with effective use of practical experience, has given me the knowledge and confidence needed. I will be teaching my first children’s yoga class tomorrow!

After an amazing experience on the Class Yoga Training, I started teaching yoga to my class at least twice a week, alongside using the Class Yoga videos. I’ve also been teaching other classes in school and got the rest of staff on board with doing your daily yoga videos. It’s had a transformative effect on the school as a whole and has clearly boosted the confidence, concentration and self-esteem of many individuals. Our school, Camelford have now won the Physical Activity, Health and Wellbeing Time 2 Move Ambition 2018, and are shortlisted for CAPH Time 2 Move Primary School of the Year Award, and the introduction of yoga across the school absolutely contributed to that.

Pupils practising yoga in the classroom

What is yoga & why should I be practising and teaching it?

Yoga is mindful movement that, when taught and practised correctly, has many, many benefits on psychological and physical health - for adults and children.

It involves:

  • Strength, coordination, confidence and concentration enhancing movements and poses
  • Posture improving, mind calming, focusing and anxiety reducing breathing exercises
  • Body and mind relaxation

And that is just the start!

Through movement and breath work it's much, much easier for children (and adults!) to practise being 'mindful', and benefit from feeling calm, present and non-reactive more of the time.

But as well as feeling calm and content, mindfulness develops executive brain function, empathy, resilience and social skills.

Upskill...

...with the only yoga with mindfulness for children course designed specifically for educators. Enabling teachers to confidently and safely provide effective, inclusive yoga and mindfulness, themselves, at school.
