Addressing The Challenges:
Yoga with children and young people is not about spirituality, it is about exploring different stories through yoga poses, breathing strategies and mindfulness. With the pressures of everyday life, children and young people are becoming more susceptible to stress.
Many schools are now seeing the benefits that teaching yoga to children as young as four can have on their pupils’ ability not only to control their bodies but to control their emotions through the mindfulness and breathing techniques which are embedded in the programme.
EYFS and KS1 – Explore the traditional yoga poses through storytelling, in which children become the characters/animals.
The adventures change each week or can be linked to stories which the pupils are studying in class. The yoga sessions can also link extremely well with the pupils’ Power of Reading texts allowing another strategy for them to explore the story.
KS2, KS3 & KS4 – The training enables young people to apply mindfulness to many areas including: body image, peer pressure, transition, exam nerves, conflict, self-image and esteem and the standard challenges that children and young people can face as part of growing up. The training will provide techniques that empower young people both mentally and physically, so they are better able to cope with emotional challenges.
