Want to help your students enjoy learning English? We can all remember certain teachers from school (and what they taught us!) because they were excellent at managing and motivating their classes. Yoga and Mindfulness are both key practices that can be used to improve the classroom environment and help motivate your students, to make sure they get the most from their learning experience.
Well, for starters, you’re getting 2 amazing courses in one neat package! They will show you how to incorporate both Yoga and Mindfulness practices into your classroom.
Yoga is a great way to engage a class of young learners whilst also teaching them key vocabulary at the same time. Mindfulness helps students to improve their focus, as well as reducing any frustration that can come with learning new things. Combining the practices of both these courses is a great way to make teaching English more effective and a really enjoyable experience, for both your students and you!
We’ve included a full breakdown of what each course will cover below:
