Teachers TV: Inspirations: Anyone for Yoga?
In ‘Inspirations’, Dianne Elithorn at Lowercroft Primary is mad about yoga and, since qualifying to teach it to children, has introduced it throughout the school.
She believes it's a non-judgemental, non-competitive exercise that all pupils can do to aid posture, co-ordination and balance, strengthen muscles, release anxiety and help relaxation.
Yoga offers a constructive outlet for anger and aggression. It improves concentration and self-esteem, and can help pupils come to terms with emotional difficulties, all of which aid learning.
