The School of ESLYoga’s principles of learning English
- Well-being is a prerequisite for successful learning and personal growth
As an educator I have experienced how the past year has profoundly impacted the needs and well-being of our students. As well-being is a prerequisite for successful learning it is therefore essential to adapt what and how we teach. However, the ongoing uncertainties and changes of our time continue to challenge our students’ mental health, outlook and readiness to learn profoundly.
- An integrated teaching approach leads to successful learning
To recreate students’ readiness for learning, students need tools and practices that support not only their learning, but also their mental clarity and well-being. The ESLYoga approach to acquiring English proficiency combines the latest methodologies in immersive language teaching and the deep knowledge of the long history of mindfulness practices.
- Learning a language lies at the heart of personal transformation
To support students holistically, ESLYoga provides a one of a kind curriculum. Through structured, experiential and open-ended activities which are all embedded in a modern context of health, yoga and mindfulness students are invited to develop their English competency and deepen their knowledge of mindfulness practices. This immersion of content and practice directly supports the learning process of English as a Second Language and understanding of how to recreate a personal sense of health and well-being.
What students and teachers say about ESL Yoga
My class (and I) loved It! They thought it was really interesting and they all felt super relaxed when we went back to class. I also appreciate how to related yoga to what were talking about in class.”
It was my first time to try Yoga today, but I had a great time with you!! I will go to ESL class on next Friday
Thanks so much for the great yoga class we all really enjoyed it, and I admire your gentle teaching style.
Thanks for the Yoga class you did with my class on Wednesday morning. I know the students really enjoyed it (as did I)!
I had a great time last night. Thank you so much. You are a wonderful instructor. I like your ESL Yoga class. If I have a time off I will joy your class again.
Thanks so much for coming to our class today. We all learned a lot about yoga and how it can be adapted to our level of mobility. You really have a wonderful gift of being able to teach the health benefits of doing yoga to the students successfully.
I got home from class and I wanted to write to thank you again for doing this wonderful lesson for our students! It was a great opportunity for all of us! All the participants were impressed and we had an extremely good time. I think you did such a great job with us, explaining the ABC’s of Yoga!! That’s what we all needed!
We are so grateful for the work you’ve done in our cross-cultural mental health program. You’ve also done such an excellent job with the booklet you provided.
I had a great time, enjoyed Yoga and met new friends!!:)
I heard from another teacher that your class was very well received.
I also wanted to say that I was inspired in every class with you. The topic you chose seemed to fit in with my life perfectly. So, I believe that going to Yoga for the month of May was meant to be.
I asked my co-workers’ for feedback this morning and the consensus was unanimous: you did a wonderful job jelating Yoga to the children and adults. The students have asked for repeats!
I really like Yoga and Martina
