Funded Yoga course for Gloucestershire School Staff

Active Gloucestershire are working with Shift Yoga to offer 50 teacher’s and TA’s from primary, secondary and special schools in Gloucestershire, the chance to learn yoga so they can use their new found knowledge to support children and young people’s mental health.
The mental health and wellbeing of children and young people is so important, but it’s also important that you, as teachers, have good mental health.
Yoga can help.

Shift Yoga are offering teachers and TA’s the opportunity to take part in a fully funded Shift Wellbeing Ambassador Course for Educators.

  • Support you to experience all the benefits of yoga for yourself
  • Equip you to manage your emotions and regulate your nervous system
  • Empower you to bring movement and mindfulness techniques into the school day and share them effectively with the young people you work with

As you work through the sessions, you’ll develop a toolkit that is sustainable, creative, and realistic for your day-day life.
The course is paced over 26 weeks, which enables you to fit this around your busy term-time schedule. The course will start in the new school term (September 2022). 

By the end of this course you will:

  • Develop a wide range of yoga and mindfulness tools to take care of yourself, and feel calm and grounded at home and at work.
  • Gain Confidence to apply these tools in your school in a flexible and effective way.
  • Feel Supported and connected with other educators making a difference to young people’s lives, now and for the future.
