The Karma Class story

The Karma Class was founded by Beth Borowsky, a mum, Educator and former Montessori preschool teacher, and one of Sydney’s most respected kids and adult yoga teachers and teacher trainers.

Her vision, alongside The Karma Class, is to bring health and wellbeing to teachers and students through evidence-based programs based on the science of Yoga, Breath and Mindfulness.

Our story began in 2005, with Beth visiting preschools to teach kids yoga classes. We have proudly evolved into a recognised and accredited service provider that advocates for daily wellbeing classroom experiences to ensure that everyone thrives – teachers and children.

In the last decade, significant progress has been made in the scientific and psycho-social investigation of how yoga and mindfulness support whole-child development, learning and wellbeing, as well as calm classroom climates.

This evidence-based research has created a sound framework for the theoretical and practical approaches at the core of The Karma Class, its programs and resources.

Research, together with global recognition, stresses that for children to learn and mature into creative, compassionate and critical thinking adults, their educational experience must attend to their social, emotional and physical needs alongside their academic learning.

The Karma Class’s programs and products attend wholeheartedly to these needs.

Children thrive in classrooms that nourish their ‘whole’ self, and we believe early intervention is key.

Three core programs that build on each other

 

We recognise that inspired learning + play requires the right combination of:​

 

  • Calm and creative classrooms
  • Healthy and resilient educators
  • Confident and enthusiastic learners

 

Our programs are designed to focus on these three core areas. They also work additively because we know that teacher wellbeing affects learner wellbeing, and vice versa.​

On their own, each of our programs will make a difference. Together, they can transform the early learning experience.​​
