Yoga for teachers

Yoga for teachers

Yoga in schools is not just for the kids, it can be of great benefit to teachers too. Whether you are spending 30 seconds during the school day taking a few deep breaths or can find 30 minutes to go through a full routine, yoga is proven to help with support for your mind, body and soul.

Teachers who practise yoga often say how it has given them an outlet for the daily stresses and frustrations of teaching. It also can equip you with strategies to stay calm during chaotic moments and help you understand and reflect on both your mindset and that of your students.
