Everyone included in the Yoga Lesson - Anita's Story
Teaching yoga as part of the integrated school day in primary schools means that I face classes of around thirty children in each lesson. Sometimes, within the thirty, I am teaching a child who has a severe physical impairment which disallows him or her from performing the posture in a conventional way. How do I make sure that everyone is included?
Here is the story of Anita, who was as much part of the yoga class as anyone else. As you read her story consider two things:
- What is the likelihood of Anita attending an after school yoga club?
- Where will Anita feel safest, supported and included?
