Further Information:

  • Research about the Yoga Ed. Tools for Teachers (and the fact that researchers looked at the benefits as well as the hurdles to implement this program into the school day and hence it has been designed to support everything and not replace or add to anything). (https://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?paperID=49338)
  • Primary and High School Teachers across Australia are already implementing the Tools for Teachers successfully into their day-to-day teaching. E.g. Marissa, John Curtin College of the Arts: "The Yoga tools have been so helpful in focusing the kids. The practice will stay with me forever in the classroom. Highly recommended."
  • Yoga Ed. Tools for Teachers is non-secular and designed by school teachers for implementation in schools. It's the most widely used in-school program in the US.
  • Teachers/Admin staff don't need to have any previous yoga experience. No special equipment is needed. You 'only' need breathing bodies. Yoga Ed. Tools for Teachers is suitable to all abilities (including those with special needs) and can be held anywhere: in the classroom, in the canteen, on the oval. With 5 children or 100 children.
  • Teachers/staff will leave the workshop confident and empowered to teach short 'Wellbeing/Mindfulness/Yoga' brain breaks in the classroom where they see fit (used as transition, preparation for testing situations, to set up/finish the day, and more) without adding anything to their (already full) curriculum.
