Yoga Joy Saigon is proud to offer a program for the community of students and teachers at your school. The program is grounded in science-based exploration of the body, mind and the self. We use mindfulness and yoga to improve and enhance learning, health and personal responsibility. Yoga is the oldest form of mind-body exercise; it integrates the mind, body and breath, developing physical health and mental clarity. The lessons support children in their intrinsic drive to acquire knowledge, skills and proficiency for active learning to take place. By developing self-awareness and self-confidence, the students and teachers will learn lifelong skills for wellness and problem solving, that we all need to for heath & well-being.
In- School Programs
We have been serving children and teachers in Ho Chi Minh City schools for two years. We work with local and international schools to create yoga and mindfulness programs that serve children before/after school as well as develop programs to integrate yoga into daily curriculum! We have an amazing kids yoga teachers that specifically travel to schools and bring yoga to kids in fun and accessible ways. We welcome all kids into our program. We prefer to offer 6-10 week sessions to really allow children the chance to understand how yoga and mindfulness can be used as a tool to help them in all aspects of their lives.
