Yoga in Schools Program
Yoga in schools is a fun, dynamic and creative way to allow students in Primary and Secondary schools to develop the fundamentals of physical, social, emotional and mental wellbeing. We teach practical skills using the techniques of movement, mindfulness, breathing, relaxation, games and story telling to assist students to establish an understanding of their thoughts and feelings. This valuable insight helps them better navigate their individual growth, social skills and academic success as they gain confidence and trust in themselves. Yoga in schools provides students with life skills to assist them to have the awareness, knowledge, understanding, tools and confidence to be in charge of their own wellbeing and the confidence to reach their full potential.
Barefoot Yoga has been teaching yoga in Perth schools for over fifteen years. Michelle has a warm, friendly and encouraging style that students absolutely love. Michelle has a knack for letting students explore within themselves in a non judgemental, caring and fun way that inspires them to give things a go and appreciate themselves. Classes are sometimes raucous and wild and sometimes quiet and peaceful in the spirit of guiding them to build inner strength and awareness. We teach practical coping tools to help them navigate their way through school and life in a productive, harmonious way with the ability to manage their stress and anxiety.
Barefoot Yoga’s ‘Be Kind to Your Mind’ school program is a 8 week program giving students a weekly class over the course of one term but can be adapted to suit your schools requirements.
