Primary & SEN School's Feedback on Training
We have really enjoyed the Yoga Scheme of Work that you provided for the school. Yoga has definitely had a positive impact on our children. Since the training day many teachers have started to teach Yoga as part of their P.E curriculum and transfer some of the skills into classroom lessons.

Just thought I would give you an update on how we are using yoga since your training visit last year. We have 1/3 of the school who chose yoga as a means for starting their day in school. They do a 40 minute session which they say has a range of affects on them. Examples include helping them prepare for the day ahead, helping them forget about stresses at home, it puts them in a positive frame of mind, it puts them in a place where they feel comfortable, they just like the feel of doing it, the like being and feeling chilled out first thing on a morning. Yoga is also used at the start of the day in gross motor skill sessions with 2 further groups of students. We also use it as a means of calming, de-stressing and focussing students who are at heightened levels of stress or are having some reflection time to review there actions in certain situations. As well as these, yoga is used in PE lessons to develop focus, concentration, body awareness, balance, motor skills and as a nice way to finish or start a lesson. There probably isn't a day when yoga isn't being done in school and the effect is has on the students is great. Thanks again

The training Michael provided for our school was inspiring, both for the teachers and the children. The calming effect and mindfulness was noticeable, even after one session. The children responded brilliantly to Yoga at School and we feel sure it will have a very positive impact upon self esteem and coping and managing with stress and anxiety. It was a wonderful experience for all involved. We are very taken with it and can't wait to roll it out. Thank you so very much for opening our eyes to the benefits of yoga in school.

I just thought to tell you how successful the yoga is at my school now. I absolutely love doing yoga! I do it in school times now as well as an after school club. I have a timetable during the week and do it as a specialist lesson, from nursery up to year 6, and all the children and teachers love it! Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, if it wasn't for your brilliant training, I wouldn't be as good as I am today. I gained so much from you in the training and have taken away so many skills and styles, which I now implement into my yoga teaching
