Using yoga and mindfulness as tools for whole school improvement
The BBEd Yoga programme is an innovative collection of new yoga courses and materials specifically designed to use yoga as vehicle for promoting behaviours for learning in the classroom and support pupils with mental health issues.
Through a partnership with Rachel Hawkes at BB Yoga, we have been able to bring my expertise in Physical Education, teaching and learning and SEN together with her expertise in children’s yoga, psychology and child development to create a unique tool for schools to impact on whole school improvement through yoga.
Rachel has a Degree in English & Psychology from Liverpool University and has studied Child Developmental Psychology at Degree Level. She has a wealth of experience as a children’s yoga teacher and massage therapist and her unique style of yoga draws on all these skills, resulting in a dynamic, creative approach, rooted in promoting healthy physical and psychological development in young children
