Whole School Professional Development

Karma Classrooms professional development for your whole school. PD is delivered to the entire staff, including support staff and administration, at your school or early childhood centre.

 

Whole school professional development

Research shows that when schools take on a ‘whole school’ approach to the Karma Classrooms program, the benefits extend beyond individual classrooms and into the broader school community.

Training all the staff 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 cultural change, both within their own classroom and the school as a whole.

Our NESA Accredited and APST aligned program is an invaluable professional development opportunity for schools and early learning centres to offer their teachers.

Become a school that integrates yoga and mindfulness into your daily curriculum, to support the development of the whole child, nourish your teachers, create positive classroom climates and a thriving school culture.
