“The Tools for Teachers had made a huge difference to my classroom!”.
Mark, Year 2 Teacher, Australia.

Professional Development 

We offer a number of Professional Learning opportunities for School Teachers and Staff which meet AITSL Standards and are aligned with the Australian School Wellbeing Framework.

 

YOGA ed. TOOLS for TEACHERS 

Yoga Ed. Tools for Teachers/Brain Breaks in the Classroom is designed for educators, health professionals, and parents.

These fun and interactive workshops empower participants to effectively utilise three to fifteen minute classroom chair yoga sessions, or “yoga breaks,” to increase self-awareness and self-regulation for students and teachers alike.

Participants will also learn the broad physical, cognitive, social, and emotional benefits of integrating breathing exercises, yoga poses, and relaxation into the classroom.

Tailored to the academic environment, all yoga tool activities require no previous yoga experience, extra equipment, or space.

Each Tools for Teachers workshop is customised to meet the unique school culture and specific needs of participants. To facilitate the optimal learning experience given a school’s unique goals, we offer many options for workshop length and pricing.

We’re running this Workshop regularly at Murdoch School of Education – but also offer this Professional Development ONSITE at schools for a more targeted approach to cultivate a Wellbeing practice across all Educators and staff.

  • One hour, two hour or four hour workshops available.

All prices include the instruction of one Yoga Ed. Trainer and one digital manual for each participant.

OTHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Other 1-2hour Professional Development Learning Workshops, customised to our experience in working with Australian Schools and the Education sector.

Wellness for Educators:

We all know that we can only give fully to others if we look after our own Wellbeing. This 1-2 hour Workshop is facilitated by Regina Cruickshank, Executive Director of Yogazeit Ltd. and certified and registered Wellness Coach.

Activities are focused around Wellness for Educators and include interactive Mindfulness and Wellbeing exercises. This workshop includes an e-Manual with easy-to-use tips and ideas to ‘fill up your cup’.

Yoga and Mindfulness for Special Needs

Facilitated by one of Yogazeit’s qualified Yoga Educators with a focus on mindful sensory activities and interactive breathing tools to support Education Support Centres and Classrooms.

Introduction to Chair Yoga and Mindfulness

As part of your PD day, this 1 hour Introduction to chair based yoga in the classroom includes 5 easy-to-use exercises for your classroom the very next day. We can customise this workshop according to your schools overall PD theme, e.g.:

  • Managing Big Emotions with Yoga and Mindfulness in the Classroom
  • Mindfulness Matters: Here’s why! (includes practical Mindfulness activities for staff and students)
  • The Teenage Brain: How Mindfulness and Movement can support focus and attention
  • Breath-Work: A whole workshop focused on the power of breathing exercises and their impact on learning, stress-release and emotion control. Together we’ll explore easy-to-use breathing exercises that work for all ages and can be taught by Educators the very next day!

and more …

  • Improve Focus
  • Reduce Stress and
  • Regulate Behaviour 

Perfect for beginners. No prior yoga experience or extra equipment required.

 

Meeting AITSL Standards.

The Yoga tools have been so helpful in focusing the kids. The practice will stay with me forever in the classroom. Highly recommended.

Sophie, Teacher

"I have committed to engaging my students in mindfulness and yoga at the start of every lesson, since participating at your Workshop at Murdoch Uni.Not only does it  provide a space for focus and awareness for my students, but it provides me with the space to explore who I am as a teacher.I have been teaching for about 24 years, so I feel like I know when I have found a good thing!  Offering a calm and meditative space for young people to be through the very difficult time of Covid-19 has felt very important. In the last few stressful days of last term, six year 7 students attended my class, four of whom said they hadn’t slept the night before. I led them through a visualisation based on yours where they go through a door. I think you call in “A special Place”. Two of them stayed asleep and one said, “Miss, can we do that every lesson?”. They then drew their happy place."

My 10 year old daughter attended the Yogini Yoga & Mindfulness Workshop and loved it!
When I asked her what was the best part she said, "meeting the girls who were all really nice, the fun activities we got to do and Regina was a really good teacher"
She's already looking forward to doing another one. So we both highly recommend the Yoga & Mindfulness Workshops with Yogazeit. Thanks Regina and it looks like we'll see you again for the next one 🙏🧘‍♀️
