International Yoga Day takes place on 21st June every year. Many teachers have added Yoga into their PE classes and those working in Educate Together classes may have added some into the Learn Together curriculum. This Irish Times article gives some examples of teachers that already have incorporated Yoga in their classrooms.
Even Jerry Buttimer, the Fine Gael Senator, has called for Yoga to be taught in primary schools, though it hasn’t gone down well in some quarters! The Bishop of Waterford was none too impressed with the idea of Yoga in the classroom.
Whatever you think yourself, International Yoga Day is a good day to get started if Yoga is something you’d like to see in your classroom. You might even consider trying it out as part of CLIL. We have 2 products on Mash where Yoga is taught as Gaeilge!
