Primary School, Intermediate and High School Programme:
My absolute passion is teaching young adults and I run a 6 or 8 week programme, which has a different theme each week. The themes range from trust, breathing, emotions, thoughts and decisions, connection and the list goes on! There are also many underlying themes that run with each class, these include respect, kindness, confidence, team work and support within the group.
These classes are 60 minutes long and are a mixture of high intensity play and also claiming moments. During my classes, there is a balance between spontaneity and structure, so students listen to themselves and each other, which allows them a platform to express themselves and be creative. These classes are not taught like traditional yoga classes and I pride myself on building great rapport, with any students I teach.
Some of the benefits of Yoga and Mindfulness are:
- An increase in strength, flexibility and fitness
- Great for posture
- Helps to nourish creativity
- Helps to balance body and mind
- Increases sensory and body awareness
- Encourages co-operation and teamwork
- Teachers relaxation and stress reduction
- Encourages compassion, generosity and respect
- Is non competitive
- Increases awareness of breathing which helps with regulating emotions
- Helps with concentration and learning in the class room
The classroom is a positive, non competitive environment, where each student is able to do what their body will allow and still receive the benefits of each pose.
