Karma Classrooms PD

Our professional development workshop empowers educators with easy-to-use, transformational tools to create a calm + inspired classroom.

 

Children cannot learn when they are feeling anxious, sad, distracted, worried or grumpy.

In fact, no one can!​

A Unique Approach to Creating the Space for Inspired Learning

Introducing Peace Pauses to create that 'just right' space between calm and alert.

Karma Classroom - daily practices

The Karma Classroom PD workshop empowers educators to create a calm and inspired classroom environment by weaving pauses into the day. Within these pauses children breathe, up or down regulate, move to oxygenate brain + body, and find that ‘just right’ space between calm and alert.  ​

We call these Peace Pauses, and it is within this space that children become more present and are better able focus, learn and play. They also learn skills to self-regulate and manage those bigger feelings, developing essential life skills to carry them through childhood and adolescence, and into adulthood.​

 

Requires just minutes a day to make a difference + no changes to the curriculum are required.


Your educators will notice a difference in their stress levels too, and adopting a consistent approach for all educators helps build more cohesion across teaching teams.

I throughly enjoyed this karma class experience, I liked learning about yoga and different types of breathing techniques. The karma cards were excellent and I cant wait till I can share all my knowledge of this fabulous Karma class to the children in my room. Thank you for this amazing experience. I loved it.
Beth provided us with many mindfulness strategies to use in our early childhood classroom and strategies to support teacher/educator wellbeing. Wonderful workshop, highly recommended! Thank you Beth!!
Beth is a great instructor, she makes the learning very easy and helps to teach the mindfulness and yoga techniques using examples of how we can word instructions easier for children to understand.
We learned a lot very interesting. I can see the children really will respond to this.
The breathing techniques helped me to take a step back and learn to breathe more effectively. The poses were a great way for me to get in touch with myself and to connect with nature and my surroundings. I'm especially grateful to have a small but wonderful insight in The Karma Class
Informative and easy to follow. Learnt new skills and how to apply the skills in the classroom that are age appropriate.
Very helpful and genuine! Learned a lot and started my journey of yoga after this class. It is very meaningful and you can learn lots of things that can be use in the classroom for children. Thank you Beth for your time and your lovely classes! I will 100% recommend it to everyone!
I would recommend this interactive training. Beth gave us lots of tips for mindful breathing techniques to use with the children to help them focus and relax. The cards are a great resource for educators.
Beth from The Karma Class has given me the tools to be able to teach our children how to take care of their wellbeing through yoga, mindfulness and breath work, thank you
Beth is fabulous! Very inspiring and full of energy. The Karma Class is a very practical workshop full of practical ideas, all very easy to introduce into any classroom setting.
Beth has provided wonderful and practical teachings to support us to create a calmer environment in our rooms and classes with the specific intention of maximising learning and increasing emotional intelligence and wellness. Highly recommend!!
Thanks so much for the inspirational ideas on how to implement mindfulness to the classroom in a fun and engaging way. A course every teacher should do!
The organisation I work for had organised a training session for us to learn breathing exercises and calming techniques to utilise in our sessions with our children, this has become useful in dealing with heightened behaviours and high energy levels.
Absolutely wonderful class.. Beth is amazing and loved every second of what she had to teach us. Highly recommended. Thank you 🙏🏼
Learning about breathing and it's benefits.
I had the incredible opportunity to participate in a Karma Class workshop. Beth is absolutely amazing! She shared so many valuable ideas and provided us with the tools and techniques to implement the Karma Classroom cards within the daily routine of the classroom. I'm excited to use them not just to benefit the children in my care, but also to support my own growth and that of my colleagues.🥰🙏

A beauitful concept that should be shared across all schools. The resources are simple and easily implemented into your everyday. I can already see there being benefits in my own teaching, as we practice these each day in class. Amazing resources for self regulation and mindfulness for anyone 💚Thank you Beth.
Beth provided us a great tool and strategies that deal with our own wellbeing as well as handling the children’s. Love the way that you let us feel differences through guided experience.
Beth's Karma Yoga class is a truly engaging experience for me. It's a perfect blend of physical challenge, mindfulness practice. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a transformative and rejuvenating mindfulness experience. Thanks Beth!
I really enjoyed this training
and recommend to others too. It's really beneficial.
Thank you so very much for an engaging, informative and relaxing beautiful day.

A wonderful workshop to support you to incorporate mindfulness in the classroom. Highly recommend!
Loved! Loved! Lots of insights on how to incorporate mindfulness in education
An invaluable workshop to teach important life skills to children and adults that can be used in all areas of life. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, teachers and non-teachers alike.
Thank you so much Beth for teaching us practical techniques on how to bring yoga techniques into the classroom. I am excited to start implementing these day to day. I especially loved the idea of Peace Pauses.
The Karma class has been a beautiful and amazing way to learn and teach mindfulness and yoga with my preschool team. Beth has not only taught us tools for teaching the children within our preschool but also how to use these tools on our everyday home life. I enjoyed every moment and would recommend to all my educator friends and services within the area. So so good. Thank you Beth.
Absolutely beautiful day with Beth, helped the team connect to their own understanding of wellbeing and mindfulness.

Gave plenty of practice ways to implement this into the classroom and the day. The examples and practices that were shared are not ones that need to be done in a seperate setting or group time, they are implemented throughout the day.

Would highly recommend for any education setting or parent or even for yourself !

Thank you Beth!
So many great ideas that are ideas for life… So valid in this busy world… And so practical
This class has been wonderful for my 3yr old to regulate his breathing when he’s upset. “Yoga breathing” has been such a helpful way to se-escalate when things get heightened and I’m extremely grateful for this tool! 🙏
Had a great time in our Karma Classes, learned a lot of new tools to make the year better for everyone, it will even benefit my children at home. Thank you ☺️
When the class started I didn’t know what to expect, I was blown away by how much I learnt as an educator and personally! I’ve added more strategies for my own mindfulness practices and can share them with my family and friends too who may be struggling with mental health. Beth’s explanation about some of the different aspects of mindfulness really caters for every being! It’s such an inclusive class and such powerful moments to really remind us of how simple we change our state of mind with more purpose and our breathing. Thank you very much Beth, a great way to start off the year for myself, the children and our learning community! 🙏
The Karma Class provided my team a brilliant morning of insightful discussions and super useful and practical experiences to bring and improve self regulation and mindfulness to each other and our children. Thanks Beth!
I think it's a great experience and tool to help educators utilize the benefits of breathing, mindfulness, and body awareness, supporting children to understand, be aware, and learn how their body functions and responds. I learned a lot!
I loved the Peace Pauses. They are definitely an experience that I can incorporate into the day with the children. The session enabled me to feel empowered to guide mindfulness and yoga.
Great practical skills as well as the knowledge base. Fantastic course.
have worked with Beth both in a centre setting as well as having attended the NESA accredited PD offered. Her knowledge and passion for yoga and child development shine through and is inspiring.The childrens yoga classes offered by The Karma Class are a beautiful Way to share this practice with children as the teachers are engaging and relatable.The PD is insightful and practical, which makes it really fun and puts what you’re learning into practice straight away. Plus the resources are beautiful!Highly recommend the Karma Class - not only for the children in your spaces but to support yourself as an early childhood professional to bring more awareness and consciousness into your day and life.
This was an amazing practical and scientifically supported approach to implementing mindful practice into our daily practice. I would highly recommended for all educational settings early childhood through to primary school.
Had a great time participating the training. It was very hands on and practical. Cant wait to implement the strategies and resources offered with the children
This was a beautiful class and I ' m really excited to start the program with my preschool group . I think they'll love it.
Over the weekend my centre had the opportunity of collaborating with the Karma class. Beth was absolutely amazing and the workshop was better than we all anticipated. We will definitely be working closely with Beth and the Karma class in our future!
This was such a great way to learn different techniques to calm down my class. As an educator of 2-3 year olds I now feel equipped to handle even the toughest moments, emotions and behaviours, all through using simple techniques and activities. Thank you so much to Beth who was such a great knowledgeable teacher!
Amazing class for Early education and care , I love it.
Great class easy to follow and perfect to use in the classroom everyday Hands on examples and demonstrations to put into practise
Very useful and valuable information
Walking away from this wonderful training course with a better understanding of how to embed mindfulness into the classrooms and how to support the team with this as well. Was also a lovely morning becoming more in tune with my own well-being. Would definitely recommend
I just did this professional development today and it was amazing and so worth having as a skill in the classroom! Would absolutely would recommend. Jhenae McBay
A wonderful, calming and hands on workshop which outlined practical ways to incorporate yoga and mindfulness into the classroom. Beth covered the practical ways that the Karma cards can be used with children on a daily basis. I am looking forward to implementing the cards with my preschool children. I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and felt more calmer afterwards!
I firmly believe that all Educators should get involved in this type of training with "the karma class" understanding the importance of uniting body, breath and mind for a more effective practice creating more meaningful learning environments for today's children. Thanks so much for step by step tips Beth. also the the resources are lovely.
Ahhh big breaths… what an amazing course! If this sparks your attention, just do it. The amount of knowledge I just received and this community I am now apart of is invaluable. I cannot wait to incorporate everything I have learnt and will be learning for my families, my own family and for our children to create healthy habits to carry them through life. I hope every educator will take the time to learn these life skills too.
What a fabulous workshop. Beth is a wonderful facilitator teaching the importance of mindfulness for adults and children. Highly recommended for all those that work with young children.
so much valuable information and not only for children but as educators!!! thank you
Useful to support children in early childhood and school and all areas of your life.
Loved this work shop and I think it is going to make a big difference to the kids I teach
What a wonderfully accessible and thought-out way of working with wellbeing in any classroom! The course presented exercises that are adaptable to different developmental stages. It was great for resetting the classroom culture and caring for teacher wellbeing. I highly recommend it.
Beth was amazing. The Karma Class training provided some great practical tools we can use for our own well-being as educators and to support the children’s emotional well-being and success for life. I would highly recommend this training to all teachers and educators.
Amazing interactive workshop with great ideas and insights. I especially like the karma classroom cards to refer to.
Very interactive and meaningful. Lots of practical ideas to implement
