The implementation of simple yoga techniques adapted for the classroom are there to help manage the energies of pupils and teachers alike, to promote effective learning. These techniques used in primary schools are linked directly with educational values. The benefits of these techniques are:
• respecting and listening to self and others
• to grow positive thoughts and good humour
• maintaining the health of the body and mind
• to straighten the spine and develop correct posture
• to learn that physical activity can lead to relaxation of body and mind
• to develop correct breathing
• to manage stress and regulate energy levels
• learning to relax and rest the body and mind
• to install periods of silence and structured rest
• to improve receptivity to teaching and to enhance learning
• learning to concentrate, develop visual memory and creativity
• to raise the pleasure of learning

This Thursday one of our 3rd, 1st and 6th Class will start a Yoga Course to see the positive effects it has. The pupils are very excited about the learning they will achieve. Yoga flower
