  • Gives educators tools to easily weave Yoga, Breath and Mindfulness into their classroom every day for just minutes at a time.  
  • Participants each receive a pack of Karma Classroom Activity Cards, making the program easy to learn and super easy to implement.  
  • They leave the workshop with tools, tips and skills on how to create calmer classrooms where everyone thrives, including them!  

Be a teacher who values the health and wellbeing of your students (and yourself) 

Created by teachers for teachers, A Karma Classroom has been designed to empower and support teachers in their multiple roles of educator, mediator and mentor.

Research shows that weaving just minutes of Yoga (mindful movement), Breath and Mindfulness into every school day helps our children establish a health and wellbeing foundation - Tools for Life. Each day they gather resources to help navigate their way through our fast-changing and unpredictable world, and to support them living positive, content and thriving lives.
