How Little Loves Yoga CIC Teaches
We take an 8 limbed approach and use yogic philosophy – yamas and niyamas. You can see an example of this approach in the image across which includes the ideas of kindness, peace, acceptance and non-judgement.
Our aim is to support schools to infuse yoga and mindfulness across education and improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and resilience for all and provide schools and communities with yoga for everyone including pupils, staff and parents.
Religion: At Little Loves Yoga, we understand schools are cautious about respecting everyone’s individual religion but we assure you that yoga is not a religion. Although it has links to Buddhism and Hinduism, yoga is practiced by all people from all different backgrounds.
We do welcome discussions about the foundations of yoga within individual schools and our aim is to provide sessions that are inclusive, understanding and accessible for all.
The Benefits of Yoga For Young People
The benefits of yoga for children and young people are many and span from physical and mental benefits. That is why Little Loves Yoga CIC believes strongly that yoga should be an everyday part of a child’s education. A few examples of the benefits of yoga include:
Improves posture, flexibility, balance, strength, motor skills and overall health.
Nutures self-esteem, confidence and acceptance which helps their overall mental health.
Helps children to recognise their emotions and the emotions of others to help them form friendships and tackle bullying.
Yoga can be practised by any child and is non-competitive which helps to promote inclusivity.
Teaches breathing techniques that decrease anxiety and create healthy coping strategies from stress.
Yoga can improve on concentration, attention and behaviour within the school environment.

Examples of classes
At Little Loves Yoga CIC, we know how important it is to instill good social skills in children to help them grow academically as well as socially. Our training will help you to use themes to deliver classes to your students that will help to encourage these needed social skills:
Self regulating emotions
Flexible thinking and thinking before speaking and acting
Using self control
Getting along with others
Showing and developing empathy
Coping with anger and frustration and disagreeing respectfully
Positive self talk
Being a good sport
Staying calm in times of stress
Taking responsibility, accepting consequences and understanding choices
Yoga and mindfulness can transform a child’s experience of school by stimulating learning through movement. Yoga can be tied into any book or project that students are working through at the time. Combining the curriculum and yoga gives teachers an impactful, alternative way of teaching that could include playtime, story time and P.E within primary school age. This combination would also compliment secondary school classes such as history, religious education and philosophy.
