Yoga is an ideal activity during or after the school day. It can take the children out of their school environment to another world, but practise in a space that is familiar and safe to them. It can be taught as part of the PE or PHSE curriculum, and supports the students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development.
During a yoga lesson the children will practice yoga individually, with a partner and in groups.
Many Yoga postures are named after animals, and children love to become a turtle, a lion or an eagle!
Each lesson comprises different Yoga activities: including postures suitable for children, a yoga game, a breathing practice (such as the Bumble Bee breath), a meditation or concentration exercise (one favourite is listening and counting the chimes of a Tibetan singing bowl), and a short story relaxation.
Specialising in children aged 8-15 years, I and can design a 6 or 10 week course specifically for these ages ranges. If you are interested in setting up an after school club, lunchtime session, or extra-curricular class please contact me to discuss your requirements.
