Whole School Professional Development
Karma Classrooms professional development for your whole school or early childhood centre.
Transforms the health and wellbeing culture by implementing the PD for all teachers.
Whole school professional development
Our NESA / TQI Accredited and APST aligned program is a transformational professional development opportunity.
Research shows that when schools and early learning centres take on a ‘whole school’ approach to the Karma Classrooms program, the benefits extend beyond individual classrooms and into the broader school / early learning community.
Training all educators gives everyone the same tools and language to weave Yoga, Breath and Mindfulness into every day. This supports a common approach where teachers collaborate with each other and affect a health and wellbeing change, both within their own classroom and the school as a whole.
Become a school or childcare centre that supports the development of the whole child, nourishes your teachers, creates positive classroom climates and builds a thriving health and wellbeing culture.
