Training teachers to deliver the YOGA FOR SCHOOLS programme in schools
(Courses also available online)
THE YOGA FACTORY trains teachers to deliver the YOGA FOR SCHOOLS programme in schools and in the community. The course offers teachers another teaching tool that can help improve the quality of their teaching and engender confidence in their pupils.
YOGA FOR SCHOOLS is an innovative exercise programme that combines the practical aspects of Yoga with relevant health facts about the body. Yoga differs from every other form of exercise for as well as exercising your body, you are also working on calming the mind. Nearly every child will report feeling happier and more contented after a session of Yoga as it enhances their health and well being.
We have already trained over 5000 teachers bringing yoga to over 1 million school children. The response to the course has been amazing. Teachers have found that not only do the sporty children enjoy the course but also the children that don’t normally enjoy PE have been very responsive to the programme. The course is suitable for all key stages 1 to 4.
Please note that inset days are also available for booking.
