Learning Through Yoga and Fun
Children at Student Care Centre (Henderson) got a dose of both flexibility and fun earlier this year through basic yoga play sessions organised by Playground of Joy, a group of teachers and therapists.
From 8 April to 20 May, the group held the first phase of a 21-week Whole Child Integrated Development Programme, which besides yoga play, included 'heart time' and 'quiet time'.
The sessions helped inculcate positive values like kindness, honesty and generosity through music, art and other activities, and taught mindfulness through focusing exercises and relaxation games. The children were encouraged to practise what they learnt at home.
