Yoga Curriculum

yoga in schools

Preschool to Grade 6

We are available to come into your school and teach your students. Classes can be incorporated into a weekly physical education program, take place after school as part of your school’s enrichment program, or we can hold school-wide field day or assembly events. We can also go into individual classrooms throughout the year and show teachers how to incorporate yoga into their lesson plans.

Our YogaPlay teachers provide meaningful, upbeat and energetic classes, creating a yoga experience that fosters self-expression, positive body awareness, positive thinking, social skills and environmental awareness. Based on the International Baccalaureate Learning Profile, the program inspires all students to be Caring, Principled, Thinkers, Inquirers, Communicators, Risk-Takers, Open-minded, Knowledgeable, Balanced and Reflective.

Secondary Schools 7 to 9

Today’s middle school students often face a long sedentary day sitting at a desk. Classes for Pre-teens and Teens will integrate a deeper understanding of the physical and philosophical aspects of yoga as well as help pre-teens and teens to discover self confidence, positive body health and awareness, emotional balance and tools for stress management.

While building strength, balance and concentration, classes will also utilize expressive yoga techniques to help foster an environment of cooperation and inner well-being. We provide you with a custom-designed program integrating the benefits of yoga into your school environment to make health and well-being an integral part of the work day.

Schedule a regular weekly meeting at your location, or a workshop designed to suite your needs and desires. We offer a wide selection to choose from such as:

  • Tools for Classroom Teachers
