School Programs

School Yoga and Mindful Schools programs can be implemented separately in schools or combined (in both primary and high school) to create a comprehensive health and wellbeing program aiming to create a focused, connected, resilient, confident and balanced student and school community (including wellbeing for teachers).

Each yoga and mindfulness class conducted through KinKou Yoga
provides health and wellbeing advice and practices based on continuing research into the physical and mental benefits of yoga exercises and the discipline of mindfulness.

All KinKou Yoga classes and programs are trauma informed, taking into account the vast range of life experiences of our students. And all of our classes and programs are sensitive to and respectful of the beliefs, traditions and cultures in our diverse communities.

Primary School

Classes are tailored to each age group from kindergarten through to year 6. Games, stories and creative-imaginative play ensures younger students are kept engaged, while age-appropriate information on health and wellbeing is provided to older students. Partner and group exercises add to the fun of School Yoga for all age groups, acknowledging the need and desire for social connection that children and teens innately feel. 

High School

Years 7 to 12 can experience an increased level of understanding about yoga exercises and mindfulness practices and how they can help. In our school health and wellbeing programs, we encourage tweens and teens to adopt a more contemplative and breath-centred practice, while building their confidence to try more dynamic and challenging yoga poses. Our classes also include the benefits of genuine self-care, reflection and connectedness, helping kids to remain engaged in their studies, relationships and communities.

Teacher Wellbeing

To create a truly focused, resilient, confident, connected school community, we need to start by with looking after our teachers.

KinKou Yoga provides yoga and mindfulness classes specifically with teachers in mind.
Classes provide an effective way to de-stress, relax and regroup, but, more importantly, KinKou Yoga’s classes help teachers and other school staff find a true connection within themselves, reigniting their their passion, confidence and purpose.

If you or your school are ready to empower children and teens to find balance, contact Kinkou Yoga today.
