A six day module (run over six months) in yoga techniques for the classroom. Each day will be practical and consist of an adult yoga class and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) – for your own personal experience. The course also offers clear handouts on the RYE theory and practice, enabling  you to start using these techniques with the children you work with, as well as integrating yoga into your daily routine.

The training is delivered to maximise learning and integration of techniques and theory so that at the end of the course you have a strong foundation from which you can continue to add to and develop. Research shows that these techniques can help improve concentration, focus and self-esteem. They also help teaching staff to promote effective learning.

Who is the RYE training for?

The module is open to school teachers, trainee teachers and teaching assistants from primary/ secondary/ nursery/ special needs, therapists (art/ speech/ play), as well as yoga teachers who are working with children (with recognised qualification and appropriate insurance) and parents.  Participants need to be working with children and do not need prior experience of yoga, although it is an advantage.
