In School Yoga's Wellness Program is a 9 week program specifically designed for years 8-12. We are focused on bringing health and well-being into our school system here in Western Australia - giving these valuable tools to as many students as possible.
For more details on our programs, please contact us.
Anxiety and stress are becoming so common in students and in school yoga programs are teaching them to cope and giving them strategies to get past the anxiety. In School Yoga's mission is to provide teenagers with practical tools they can use in their everyday life, helping them to manage stress, combat emotional situations, and maintain a general sense of balance and wellbeing.
In addition to our 9 week Wellness Program, we also offer the following yoga, meditation, and mindfulness workshops for both students and teachers. These workshops give you a taste of what our Wellness Program offers.
On Development Days, we come to you to indulge you in an hour of meditative yoga practice. A well-deserved re-boot for your hard working teachers and a great way to educate them on mindfulness practices which they can use in their daily lives as well as in the classroom.
Our Wellness Program is designed to achieve results. However, a camp experience or workshop is a fun, positive and great way to educate students and teachers about mindfulness.

Thank you so much for the session yesterday. I have not previously had the pleasure of attending one of your sessions but wow, you were fantastic. Not just as an experienced and professional practitioner but so very good with engaging the students. The feedback from them was extremely positive - they really enjoyed it and got a lot from it.

Doing the yoga outside was amazing. I have never thought about the breath and the focus that goes into it to make it more then 'poses'. I feel less tight and knotted up. My body hurts less on days I do this. Thank you.

Yoga really helps in calming us down after stressing over school and expectations. The pace of your sessions are relaxing and I think more people should join in the yoga club next semester! Thank you very much.
