Our Yoga programme is the perfect solution to improve behaviour, promote mental health awareness and remove worries for children in KS1 and KS2.

The objectives of this programme include:

  • Improving children’s mental wellbeing, creating mental clarity and calmness
  • Developing body awareness including understanding biology
  • Management of stress through breathing and meditation
  • Building concentration
  • Detachment from electronic devices
  • Balance skills
  • Strengthening core muscles
  • Enabling children to feel part of a non-competitive physical exercise group

Today, children are bombarded with technology, screens and mobile devices. We have found that yoga in primary schools has improved both attendance and behaviour as well as promoting an awareness of mental health. Our unique yoga programme has a huge range of health benefits and incorporates child-friendly themes, topics and resources to keep children engaged at all times such as:

  • “Going on a bear hunt” through Yoga
  • Moana themed Yoga
  • Salutations to songs children will be familiar with

As a passionate “Yogi” herself, our Company Director Stacey Barsby released the following statement regarding her views on yoga for children:

“Aside from the physical benefits of yoga including core muscle strength and increased flexibility, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a child compartmentalise stress and emotions enabling a child to have a ‘brain break’ from the daily strains that technology poses for our children today. What I like most about yoga for children is that it gives children an alternative way to deal with challenges in school and the fact that it is an amazing alternative to get children active who are not normally fond of physical exercise.” September 2018

Monday, July 06, 2020

2020 has seen unprecedented times that we, as a company, never thought we would find ourselves in. We would like to express our gratitude to our:

  • Amazing clients

Working in the public sector can be very challenging at times and we understand that for schools, it is difficult to appreciate the way that our business works. Thanks to the support of our schools and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we managed to waive over £300,000 of invoices to schools. This left us in a very difficult situation as we still have our HQ premises mortgage, bills to cover and suppliers that unfortunately have had to charge us regardless of the situation. We have lost approximately 10 schools for 2020-2021 due to COVID-19 and the budget cuts their schools have faced. We are very hopeful that these schools will return to us once they are open in September and have received funding support from the government.

  • Wonderful staff

Given one days notice that all schools in the UK would close, our staff had to frantically cancel over 90 PPA sessions daily, indefinitely. Throughout the peak of the crisis, we have had to work night and day to ensure the decisions we were making were going to have a minimal impact on our regular services once schools resumed. Our staff have taken the time to organise their work, to write new lesson plans for children and new schemes of work and we couldn’t be more grateful of their support. This truly shows their passion for the education sector and above all their love for children and learning!

  • Suppliers

To those suppliers who have been flexible with us during these unprecedented times, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tsunami Computers Leicester, Lex AutoLease, WaterPlus and many more have allowed us to pause or reduce our monthly payments whilst we have received no income. This has made the difference between us surviving and not surviving the crisis. 

Going forwards, we will be rebuilding our business back up to where we were and support from schools in outsourcing their PPA to us to help us rebuild is greatly appreciated. We understand PPA time is a legal requirement for all teachers and the majority of the subjects that we cover are compulsory so if you are struggling to cover PPA time, would like to explore a new method of covering a compulsory subject such as MFL or ICT, please allow us to provide your school with a FREE trial and show you why you should choose us and support our small business.

We would like to send our well wishes to all small businesses both who have survived the crisis and who unfortunately have closed their doors. If you have managed to survive like us, please dig deep and find that energy to push forwards once more to rebuild your business rather than give up. The UK needs small businesses and even more so now with unemployment on the rise. It will be worth it, we promise!
