About RYE

Micheline Flak founded RYE – Research on Yoga in Education - in 1978. She taught English in a Parisian middle school and was also a yoga practitioner and teacher. Her experience of yoga began to influence her English lessons and through various experiments of incorporating yoga instruction in the classroom she became deeply interested in the way yoga enhanced the whole learning process. Micheline’s experience of yoga comes from the hatha and raja yoga tradition - a holistic approach, integrating all aspects of being.

RYE has its roots in ancient yogic tradition, and its basis is centred on 6 principles that are relevant and effective tools for the modern classroom. RYE uses simple yoga techniques – postures, breathing, relaxation and concentration in small amounts throughout the lesson to improve learning, by unifying the body with the mind, creating amity within the class, amongst both peers and teacher.

More and more research is constantly being explored on the complexity of how individuals learn and schools are often implementing new methods. This in itself can often be draining for teachers who already have a multitude of tasks to perform. The key to RYE is that the teacher experiences yoga and RYE techniques for themselves to help harmonise both body and mind, enabling them to use the techniques more effectively.

 

RYE UK and EURYE

RYE UK was set up in July 2005 and since then we have conducted the Foundation Module in London, at Bath Spa University and in Bulgaria. We have run sessions at the international seminar that is conducted by EURYE and held every two years in different countries. EURYE gives teachers from different countries an opportunity to connect with other teachers and to share ideas and techniques. EURYE is an international organisation with branches in France, Italy, Belgium, Uruguay, Israel and Greece to name but a few. Each country runs their own RYE training according to the needs of participants. See: www.eurye.eu
