Yoga and Learning

Highlighting the benefits of yoga for overall wellness and concentration, to improve performance in the workplace or classroom

  • Yoga for Students 2017

A wealth of research has recently highlighted the benefits of yoga for overall wellness and concentration – time on the mat can improve performance in the workplace or classroom. In November, Nord Anglia Education published an article online highlighting how yoga can unite the mind, body and spirit to improve strength, flexibility and co-ordination.

At Dover Court International School, yoga is a valuable tool we use to promote focus, strength and mindfulness for all. Children access yoga through their PE sessions and in the classroom during relaxation activities. In addition, we run three different yoga ECAs each week with a focus on primary, secondary and DSE yoga (which is tailored for children with additional learning needs).

Alongside our qualified PE teachers, we are pleased to congratulate Miss Sarah Alison who recently qualified as a SEN yoga instructor. Miss Alison will be leading the DSE Yoga ECA each week and designing specific yoga programs targeting individual needs delivered in an assessable and engaging way. More information can be found in the most recent ECA booklet online.

But yoga is not just to enhance teaching and learning! Our dedicated staff take part in a weekly afterschool yoga session led by Miss Alison and Mrs Fernandez to help us relax, de-stress and prepare for the week ahead. For you busy parents out there, yoga is a great way to tune-in to yourself and gain valuable ‘me time’. So go ahead, try it!
