Soraya teaches yoga in schools in the Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire area. Classes can be run as either Lunch or After School Clubs or encorporated into the school day as part of a PE lesson or as a mindfulness practice.
The classes are fun and informative, working on improving children's awareness with their bodies, balance, concentration and posture. Throughout the classes focus is also brought in on topics such as; non violence, how to handle anger, truthfulness, working together as a group to support each other. Awareness of our actions and other topics that feed into many areas in the school curriculum, such as; pshe. Many schools have found that pupils concentrate to a far greater degree after their yoga practice and parents find that their children learn how to handle anxiety and other emotions through the practice of yoga.
Yoga in schools works very well as taster sessions for the whole school during a Healthy School or Sports Week.
Soraya can also offer teachers yoga, a relaxing yoga session during an inset day or a regular class after school to help alleviate the overwhelming stress that teachers can find themselves dealing with. They will be able to participate in a wonderfully calming and rejuvenating yoga class (open to bodies of all shapes, sizes and flexibility!). Apart from being a great introduction into yoga, some of the basic yoga techniques can be transferred easily and shared with the children in a classroom situation.

I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant and kindness from the unkind. Yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers. Kahil Gibran
