At Alamba Yoga we offer specific programs that are able to embed themselves into the National Curriculum at local schools. Each class will be adapted to the agenda and requirements of the school.
These classes will include basic poses and postures, which will educate the children on breathing techniques and asanas to improve concentration and focus. All of the skills learnt within the Yoga classes are beneficial for both the physical and mental development of the children and thus enables them to better cope with their studies.
Here is how yoga can benefit children’s life in school. Yoga:
- Brings students into the present moment, ready for learning.
- Eases anxiety before taking exams.
- Enhances focus, concentration, comprehension, and memory.
- Supports social and emotional learning.
- Improves posture.
The Telegraph recently published an article surrounding the topic of Yoga in school, which had various interesting studies:
After doing 10 weeks of classroom yoga, a University of Massachusetts study published in 2014 showed overall improvements in primary school aged children’s social interactions with classmates, attention span, academic performance, ability to deal with stress and anxiety as well as boosting their confidence, self-esteem and overall mood.
