Discover how using yoga to calm the classroom is as beneficial for teachers as it is for children…
Many children with SEN have sensory processing or integration needs that impact upon their ability to concentrate, engage socially and maintain their emotional wellbeing.
Special Yoga methodology provides children with a balancing sensory diet while teaching self regulation, improving functionality and building their self-esteem. It can be adapted to suit all children, including those with SLD, ASD, and high anxiety.
Yoga and mindfulness practice are proven to reduce stress and anxiety. Special Yoga makes these more accessible by using breath adjustments, simple movements, massage and relaxation to calm the nervous system.
These tools can be used throughout the day to reduce pupils’ reactivity and bring more peace to your classroom. By simply learning how to regulate their breath, a person can change their state in a matter of minutes.
There’s a mental health crisis in schools. Special Yoga can provide practitioners with a set of accessible tools for building resilience and pupils with various coping strategies.
Recognising the immense pressures that schools are under, we are committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of the whole school – staff, as well as pupils.
Special Yoga helps children develop the skills they’ll need to become enabled learners.
Having gained increased levels of independence and empowerment, these children will be more relaxed and better able to communicate their needs and wishes.
