Sam B Yoga has had a great deal of success over the last 5 years of teaching Yoga and Mindfulness within Schools and Colleges in the local area.

The success of Sam B Yoga’s classes on pupils within schools has been featured on BBC South Today (4th July 2017).  Pupils said that yoga, the breathing and mindful techniques taught by Sam B Yoga helped them to “calm their minds”, “filter out distractions”, “focus on their work”,  “keep their brains healthier”, “prioritise their work”, “build core strength and flexibility in their bodies” , “help them to sleep”, “decrease social anxiety”, “overcome anger”, “relieve stress” “physically do more things” and “be themselves”.  They said it made them feel “calmer”, “more relaxed”, “not so stressed”, “happier”, “fitter”, “stronger”, “more positive”, “energised”, “less agitated” and “focused”.

Sam B Yoga has helped teenagers to manage their stress prior to their GSCE exam period. Classes have also significantly helped children with behaviour and emotional issues, Autism, ADHD and those suffering from mental illness. Sam B Yoga classes helped children suffering Hemiplegia with positive results.

If your school is interested in Sam B Yoga classes within your curriculum then please get in touch. Sam B Yoga offers presentations educating pupils and staff on Yoga, its benefits and research papers and case studies.

Yoga is a philosophy and a science and not a religion. Yoga teaches moral codes for treating oneself and others, how to keep your body, mind and spirit in a healthy optimum working order, how to increase energy and focus through breathing techniques, how to calm the mind and self-regulate through mindful practices and how to transform your life through meditation and the necessary steps needed for a true and powerful meditational experiences that impact every single aspect of your life and the way you lead it.
