Inspired by the Yoga Bananas Technique™, this class supports the physical, balancing and respectful nature of Yoga. I teach an inspiring and imaginative Hatha Yoga class through rhymes, story-telling and games. My practice is influenced by different branches of yoga including Hatha, Iyengar, Vinyasa flow and Integral Yoga. I have been privileged to experience training with Rowan Cobelli and Siva Trefzer of Integral yoga, Master Yoga Teacher Paul Jerard and the inspiring Skippy Oliver of the Yoga Bananas Technique. Children learn strategies for respecting themselves, each other and the world around them. During Yoga the focus is always brought back to breathing. Concentrating on breath control means children are kept in the present moment and increased oxygen can travel through the blood, offering optimum brain functioning in these crucial early years. This leads to a relaxed state of mind perfect for learning!
YOGA FOR TEACHERS
As a teacher I understand the exhaustion you can begin to feel throughout the term. Yoga is the perfect way to de-stress and restore some energy. I can offer a short REVITALISING Yoga class followed by a RELAXATION. Contact me about a FREE team-building class for teaching staff. Perhaps it would be appropriate as part of an INSET day or during a staff meeting? I will teach the staff in the same way that I teach the children so that strategies can be learnt for the classroom. This is a great opportunity for the teaching staff to let loose and experience their inner-child while picking up on some useful yogic strategies to support learning and behaviour management in the classroom.
