Yoga in Schools

outdoor yoga

Whether you want to hold a special yoga event or establish an ongoing program, Eugene Imagination Yoga can tailor activities to meet the needs of your school, childcare facility, community organization, or other group.

 

Preschool

Preschool-aged children benefit from short yoga sessions (30 minutes max) with lots of movement and fun. Imagination Yoga works with young children’s natural love for imaginative play while teaching skills that enhance their capacity for self-regulation.

 

Elementary School

Children aged five through twelve are developing longer attention spans and growing in their ability to practice stillness. As they mature, they can enjoy longer yoga sessions with more inner focus and more complex imaginations. Imagination Yoga supports elementary-aged children’s continuing need for movement and play while cultivating mindfulness and aiding executive function.

 

Teens

Teenagers need tools to help them cope with challenges like stress, anxiety, depression, and negative self-image. Imaginative yoga for teens can include a mix of challenging movement, interoception, and guided meditation supported by timeless stories from varied traditions that carry an affirming theme throughout the practice.

 

Teachers

Teaching is widely recognized as one of the most stressful professions. The pandemic created additional challenges, making the job even more stressful for many. As a result, teachers have experienced  an increase in mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Providing time and space for your teachers to practice yoga together can help them learn to more effectively regulate their nervous systems, build resilience, and strengthen their sense of community.

 

Groups of All Kinds

Imaginative Yoga can be fun for families, campers, coworkers, and other groups that wish to build their sense of community and belonging! The format can be modified to support a wide range of abilities and even incorporate partner poses for team building and fun.
