The grant enabled us to expose pupils to activities they wouldn’t usually access; BRAVE methodology includes the classical yoga practices of movement, breathing, deep relaxation combined with sound, rhythm, and sensory integration techniques.
It comes with a range of benefits for our pupils; the poses support the development of muscle strength, coordination and core stability. In addition, it provides a calming sensation enabling the body to process sensory input in a regulated way.
Across the year, pupils have been working on different skills and poses. The sessions have helped them develop their breathing, improving their mindfulness. With the pandemic causing uncertainty, additional self-regulation strategies are incredibly useful for our learners.
