Teachers taking a yoga class

Concept by: Federica di Bartolomeo

Description

This course aims to familiarize educators with Yoga practice as a powerful tool for handling stress, improving their teaching skills and increasing their physical, mental and emotional health. While it is suitable for absolute beginners, it is also meant to be enjoyable for those who have been already taking yoga basics/ low intermediate classes.

By experiencing different yoga styles and thus several poses, breathing and meditation techniques, throughout the course participants will learn how these practices can enhance their ability to maintain a favorable climate in their school community and support resilience in and out of the classroom.

Teachers will be also provided with the latest scientific evidence about the benefits of Mind-body interventions, especially in school environments. Finally, a part of the course will be dedicated to the best practises to introduce children and teens to yoga and meditation techniques.

Guided city tours and 1 full day cultural excursion will also be part of the programme.
