The RYE Method
For over 30 years RYE (Research on Yoga in Education) has been working with educators around the world developing techniques & skills to enhance the learning environment within the classroom for both teachers and students.
The RYE approach is to intersperse simple yoga techniques over the school day, integrating them into the topic of learning. This helps improve pupils’ attitudes to learning and maximises their mindfulness, attention and memory.
These techniques can be integrated into many different activities with children, offering valuable life skills. Research shows that these techniques can improve concentration, focus & self-esteem, promoting effective learning.
