To allow students to have motor breaks throughout the day
To enhance focus and concentration
To prepare the student for learning
To wake students up and increase creativity
To improve posture for sitting comfortably
To improve listening skills
To support physical, social and emotional health of students.
The programme is initially a pilot scheme delivered via a workshop.
To enable primary school teachers to deliver breathing practices, various yoga poses, relaxation and mindfulness practice.
There is also an online library of videos that can be accessed in the classroom via pre-recorded video sessions.
Access to the library is an annual subscription.
