Stretch & Play Tools for Teachers
Professional Development Workshop for School Teachers
Learn to use simple, effective Pilates, Yoga and Mindfulness exercises in your classroom.
Stretch & Play presents Pilates and Yoga as ideal disciplines for mind/body fitness in schools. Because they focus on the integration of breath, movement and concentration, it makes us aware of our mind/body state and gives us tools to be responsible for the condition of that state.
Our education is knowing you have the ability to choose the positive path of health by shifting yourself from imbalance to balance, stressed to centred, angry to calm, anytime you choose.
Stretch & Play provides movement and mindfulness programmes for schools that are both affordable and easy to implement. Proven effective in University Studies, this workshop has been taught in the USA as well as Europe and now is available in the UK!
It is a programme that empowers Foundation Stage or Key Stage 1, 2 or 3 teachers, even those new to Pilates, Yoga or Mindfulness, to instruct simple movement and mindfulness exercises to their students. These techniques are designed for the classroom, require no extra space or equipment, and can help enhance focus, concentration, creativity, communication and discipline.
This training takes place in your own environment (school, community group, etc.) so each course is priced differently according to travel expenses and time required. Please contact me for a quote about this highly desirable in-person training.
