Yoga

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

With so much talk in the press over the past weeks, it only seems apt to publish something around Mental Health. National Mental Health Week was this week, and we are now seeing more and more people being open and honest about their mental health. Many schools are now offering sessions to not only pupils to channel their thoughts and feelings but staff too. We at Primary PPA Cover pride ourselves on being at the fore-front of research and development and our Yoga and Mindfulness sessions prove this. They not only work on core strength but inner strength and how to deal with different situations. This is being bought into our Head Office too with staff getting involved and utilising our Mental Health Coach, Rachel. Please get in touch if this is something you would like to know more about and how we can bring it into your school.
