Yoga In Schools

We have a dream to introduce yoga to as many children as possible, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of the modern day world.  Yoga not only helps children with co-ordination, balance and staying active it also teaches them vital skills to help reduce stress and increase focus. It  helps them switch off for a while from all the technology they are surrounded with.

But how do we implement this dream?  We train teachers to bring yoga into their schools.  Read how Emily discovered yoga for herself and decided to follow her passion and train to become a Children’s Yoga Teacher:

fullsizeoutput_6b4What brought you to Yoga?
Stress, I was 28 years old in my first Headship. I really enjoyed the challenges and successes of my post but quickly became overworked. Spinning many BIG plates! I was signed off due to stress after a couple of years and decided to resign from my post. I decided to take a more holistic route to rebuilding myself and was recommended to try Yoga. I began Yoga at Go Yoga and haven’t looked back!!! It’s changed my life and my body! I now believe you don’t need anything else!

How did you find your training?

My training was inspirational! I met some amazing people including the teachers, Helen and Sophie. I learnt so much about myself, children and yoga!

What difference has training made to your working life?
The training gave me the time to reflect on my current post as a Class Teacher and my current practice, I have been able to alter/adapt/improve mine and my colleagues attitudes, values and mindset. The training also helped me to manage my own thoughts, perspective and work/life balance.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of taking up teacher training at GoYoga?
Gain some experience of practising yoga before attending.

Would you recommend GoYoga?
Absolutely!

What’s your freak flag?

Go on! Let your freak flag fly!

What would you say to someone who told you to express your ‘freak flag’?

This little moment of madness is apparently within us all. This is your ‘freak flag’.

Freak flag: means a manner or appearance of someone, sometimes subtle sometimes obvious, who is or acts a little eccentric, unconventional, unique or individual?

The first time I heard about the ‘freak flag’ was a few months ago when someone told me I was ‘flying my freak flag’ without knowing precisely what it was.

pexels-photo-669004.jpegThe word ‘freak flag’ comes from a song by David Crosby – a hippy singer from the 1970’s.

He sang:-

‘I almost cut my hair’.

Almost cut my hair

It happened just the other day

It’s getting kinda long

I coulda said it was in my way

But I didn’t and I wonder why

I feel like letting my freak flag fly cause I feel like I owe it to someone

I almost cut my hair is right here…

David Crosby is going to inspire your freak flag…. and yes I feel like letting my freak flag fly….

David Bowie said: ‘ I have always had an irrepressible desire to be sth more than human.’ His freak flag flew and flew.

So time to let your flag fly, on this Spring day. Let it fly:-

These guys channelled their freak flag, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Madge, Snow Patrol, erm… Jason Donovan? Anyhow lots of people did.

They channelled their music their art, their writing. Thinking differently. Being different. Come on let your freak flag fly!

Listen to your inner voice!

So here’s a three point plan:-

  1. Every time you feel like you are going off course, make a check in with yourself. Does this feel right? Close your eyes and take a break and say. Does this feel right?

2. Is there something you have always wanted to do? Dance? Cook Malaysian. Buy a    zoo?Write down 10 mad things you have wanted to do.

3. What can you do now? Start to fly it now? Listen to your favourite music, dance, turn on the radio, let yourself go.

Here’s that little tune:- Let your freak flag fly…

Run

Just keep on closing your eyes when you are not sure and listen to yourself and let that freak flag fly.

Why I made Go Yoga

Going to the gym is great, feeling fit is great, getting your exercise endorphins buzz is fantastic. As everybody knows, a healthy body leads to a healthy mind….. BUT there’s just one problem…Keeping the motivation to keep going. It’s just too easy to think of an excuse to leave it till tomorrow.  What if there was a way that made you want to exercise. Where you could in a short space of time, get your buzz and also feel like you are totally balanced in Mind, Body and Spirit. That is GoYoga.

I spoke to one lovely lady this evening who has just discovered us, she has taken on our 30 day unlimited pass where she can get 30 consecutive days of classes for almost £1.70 per class. She has been coming every day and now says:”I feel two inches taller”.

That is what we aim to do. To get you wanting to come back.

Our classes and teachers are so varied and so in love with teaching you, they want you to come back too. We love them, they love you, it’s one big fab happy time!

Not only do our classes get you hooked quickly, we also operate  a booking system, which encourages you to turn up.  If you book a class, you turn up.  If you don’t, you lose your pass.  This in itself makes you come, therefore you have to feel good.

Whatever age you are, we have something for you from Toddlers to mums to mums of mums. A range of classes from Go Calm the Flow Down to Go Hot Vinyasa (Vinyasa is a fast flow of moving yoga sequences.)

Come find us, we are in Hornbeam and in the town centre at Commercial Street. We are also coming to another town near you!

Namaste

Sophie 🙂
