Mindful Yoga
in Schools

An ASMY initiative to empower students and teachers with tools for self-awareness, stress management and self-regulation.


Mindful Yoga in Schools is a project by the Australian School of Meditation & Yoga.

Our teachers are experienced, fully qualified kids yoga and meditation instructors who are trained to teach children of all ages, as well as those with special needs.

Mindful Yoga runs in schools, after school care, sporting facilities, kindergartens, holiday workshops and more.

We also have ongoing classes at our centre in Nobbys Beach on the Gold Coast.


In line with the The Department of Education and Communities Wellbeing Framework for Schools, Mindful Yoga in Schools has been developed to strengthen the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students to improve their experience of learning and quality of life.
