RYE Foundation Module 2018

The 6-day RYE Foundation Module offers yoga for children training in a simple, fun and interactive way. Yoga techniques are adapted for the classroom for children aged 3 – 18 years.

Research shows these techniques can improve concentration, focus and self-esteem, promoting effective learning.

For 30 years RYE (Research on Yoga in Education) has been working with educators around the world developing techniques and skills to enhance the learning environment within the classroom for both teachers and students.

The module is open to school teachers, trainee teachers, teaching assistants and special needs teachers as well as therapists (play, art, speech, occupational) and yoga teachers who are working with children and to parents.
