To all our Springs-Waiōrea students/ākonga – come and learn how to practice yoga over 6-weeks in Term 3.
When: Thursdays after school: 3:30pm to 4:30pm.
The first 6-week course is generously funded by WSCW and will be at no cost to participants. Our librarian Andrew Raba will be teaching the course.
Over 6 weeks, students/ākonga will learn how to do their own yoga practice at home in a way that is right for them. The course will cover sun salutations; a calming practice for sleep; breathing techniques for exam week, and more.
Yoga is for everyone. All body types, ages, health, and cultural backgrounds are welcome. No flexibility required.

Yoga is a simple practice of moving and breathing for wellbeing. Yoga is a way for students to participate in their breath every day as a holistic practice.
Te Ao Māori has always acknowledged the breath as the central pillar of a person’s hauora: their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. When we move and breathe, the mind gets linked to the body and the natural world/Papatūānuku/Mother Nature. When we feel connected and grounded then the mind calms down: anxiety reduces, thoughts become useful, and we can concentrate better on our schoolwork and hobbies.
