It's Half Term all around the UK, and our children's teachers are getting a well-earned rest. But before they all headed off for a break, YOGADOO Founder and teacher, Lucy Aston spent the day with Primary School teachers and teaching staff from East Bath Learning Partnership, teaching the teachers how they can use Yoga and Mindfulness both in their own lives, and in the classroom.
Over 200 staff attended the joint INSET day at St Saviour's Junior School in Larkhall with teachers and TA's from St Saviour’s Infants and Juniors, Bathford, Batheaston, Swainswick, Bathampton and Freshford all taking part in workshops and training sessions throughout the day.
Lucy gave staff practical and creative ideas on how they could introduce pupils to Yoga and Mindfulness as part of everyday classroom life and across the curriculum. She also ran a short Yoga session and Mindfulness exercises for the teachers themselves.
This is part of YOGADOO's wider work with the BANES Sports Partnership team, where Lucy is teaching Yoga and Mindfulness in ten Primary Schools across the Bath area.
