River Bear Yoga

Rights Links: Article 24 - Health and Health Services



To support our children’s emotional well-being, staff have been trained in teaching the children ‘River Bear Yoga’. Yoga, mindfulness and meditation is a proven way to help children with their mental and physical health. River Bear Yoga reduces stress for everybody, creating healthy, happy classrooms. We have purchased resources, including a class set of yoga mats, so that River Bear Yoga is being implemented into our curriculum.

Mrs Cox wrote to Mrs Westwood to say, “I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic addition to the timetable River Bear Yoga has been. The children have LOVED it, with many asking to more in their free time, and commenting on how it has helped them with relaxation and to manage their anxiety. It has been lovely to see how relaxed the children have been straight afterwards, and I think it will continue to have a positive effect on the whole class.”

During their River Bear Yoga sessions, the children will be learning 5 breathing exercises; 20 yoga poses; 20 yoga and drama games; and 5 mindfulness meditations.
