Course Introduction

This course is Future Learning’s Teacher Training Course that aims to teach simple, effective meditation or yoga techniques which participants can use to support their own well-being and that of their students. Each day’s topic will be covered through a combination of exercises and practical activities. Participants will learn to meditate for a short time without guidance as well as to prepare and lead a short meditation suitable for their learners or learn yoga poses with effective breathing techniques to calm the mind.

This programme offers participants the opportunity to take part in tutorials and group meditations with the development of daily topics as well as course and lesson planning sessions and group discussions.  The programme is divided amongst 10 course days and participants can choose from the the following options:

  • Meditation and Mindfulness in the Classroom (week 1, 5 course days)
  • Yoga and Mindfulness in the Classroom (week 2, 5 course days) or
  • Mindfulness in the Classroom (week 1&2, 10 course days).

Learner Outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will have

  • learned simple practical meditation and yoga techniques for use in a language classroom
  • developed a toolkit of simple meditation techniques to support their own and their students’ well-being
  • become confident in using short simple meditation/yoga sequences with their students
  • understood how these techniques can help us to be more present with our students, and create a happier class atmosphere and better learning outcomes, by improving class relationships, attention and helping students be better prepared for learning.

Mindfulness in the Classroom

My course at school was not just to learn a new language, but to learn new cultures, people and do things I had never done before. All of this is a very interesting concept that made me learn much more than I expected. I can say that my time at Future Learning was a great experience for me!
