A Calm Classroom - Yoga, Breath & Mindfulness for Kids
NESA accredited 1 day workshop for Early Childhood & Primary Teachers
Bondi Junction, Sydney
A nourished teacher creates a calm and happy classroom
Completing The Gifts of Kids Yoga will contribute 5 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 4.3.2 and 4.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining their Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
A one day workshop focusing on 2 important initiatives:
1. Educators Health and Wellbeing
In a job that can be very stressful as well as physically challenging, Educators often burn out quickly and/or become physically injured. The first part of this training leads Educators through a gentle adult yoga class and short meditation. They are given tools to manage their stress and anxiety levels, as well as their physical health and wellbeing.
2. Learn to weave aspects of kids yoga, breathing, meditation and mindfulness into the classroom on a daily basis
Daily bursts of yoga and mindful breathing gives children skills to manage stress, anxiety and challenging behaviours. It provides them with tools to self regulate when tough situations arise and teaches them to use their bodies and breath to release tension.
It also enhances the children's yoga experience by extending yoga beyond just the weekly classes that our team delivers.
Educators are given short yoga sequences, and gain an understanding of how different breathing techniques can be used effectively to manage various forms of child stress, as well as challenging classroom situations.
The training equips educators with ideas for keeping children engaged, calm, interested and focused, and a resource kit, packed with ideas, that can be used at various times across a day.
The training is 6 hours in duration (incl lunch)

Here's what teachers are saying:
I thoroughly enjoyed the day and look forward to implementing many of the practices in the classroom. I feel confident that it will benefit
both the children and myself.
Very impressive, inclusive, useful , relevant and practical. Very enjoyable and will be useful for work and private practice. I am very glad I was able to attend today!
Thanks so much Beth. It covered my expectations of what would be delivered today with a perfect mix of practical, hands-on and theory. I really appreciated your Early Childhood knowledge linked directly to the course content.
Starting with the yoga class was perfect and put me in a space that was receptive to learning. I am looking forward to implementing more yoga with the children.
