Feedback I’ve received about my Yoga in Schools
‘Emma is a very knowledgeable professional who worked with all year groups and with a range of different abilities. She built a great relationship with all of the students she worked with.
Yoga has had a positive impact on the students’ self-esteem, concentration and behaviour. It has helped to develop their motor skills, body awareness and coordination and provide sensory integration. It is ideal for young people with autism and a great addition to curricular activities.
As well as working with students Emma provided in-house training for staff, which helped them to integrate various yoga techniques in to classroom activities. We cannot recommend Emma highly enough, she is fantastic.”
