I have spent many years sharing Yoga in Schools which has equipped me with valuable knowledge to share which enhances the mental health of children and provides them with tools that they can take away from the mat and into their everyday life.
School life and growing up is a stressful affair, but with great guidance & encouragement, their self belief, and yours as a parent/teacher will be enhanced and life flows with ease.
I provide fun, age appropriate Yoga Sessions within Schools & Educational Establishments to assist teachers and carers in providing wellness & good mental health support.
We can work together to ensure that specific themes or focus points are met to compliment the curriculum as well as working 1:1 with specific individuals.
Now, I share my teachings with students of all ages from pre school and beyond. I teach in schools as I feel that this development of the human consciousness is paramount for us to continue on the earth as a species. Joy & peace can be found in any small moments and that is what I have developed to share.
My goal is to share my knowledge and tips & tricks to guide children to a greater place of peace joy and self acceptance - They are perfect and they are valued and I am here to guide them to that place.
'Jo delivered some wonderful yoga sessions to a group of 10-11 years olds. Children can feel some pressure in Year 6, and as a teacher, I was amazed by how the ... session completely transformed the children’s outlook. Jo's clear instructions and friendly nature engaged all of the pupils, leaving the children in a much calmer place than at the start of the class.
The session gave instant benefits with many of the children commenting about how great they felt afterwards. I have since seen several children use some of the techniques taught to cope in different situations – a valuable tool for life. I wouldn’t hesitate to use yoga again the classroom – thank you Jo Yoga!'
I can’t speak highly enough of Jo and her Yoga sessions. She just gets the pupils, is so inclusive and makes every single one of us so welcome. The pupils massively benefit from the Yoga sessions and absolutely love it. I can definitely tell that they are so relaxed and calm after the session.
Our pupils love attending the sessions and always look forward to their hour of yoga with Jo. We have noticed pupils have gained a better sense of self-regulation using the tools Jo has taught them. Those pupils who present with anxiety comment on how calming the sessions are and that it ‘helps them to relax’. Jo has also adapted her sessions to cater for a child with cerebral palsy (who is wheel chair bound) and since attending, her physiotherapist has commented on the improvements in her mobility. It just shows that yoga really is for everyone.
