- Kids need calm surroundings in order to learn.
What is YOGO?
YOGO is a digital soundscape based on physical and mental exercises inspired by yoga and meditation. Each YOGO takes three minutes and is designed to create calm surroundings in the class room and improve student engagement.
Kids, as well as teachers, depend on a healthy learning environment. Quiet in the class room increases concentration and strenghtens the community.
YOGO helps you create structure and provides an array of health related benefits for your students.
YOGO creates a calm class room environment, strengthens kids focus and learning ability.
It is vital for children to exercise 45 minutes a day. YOGO allows your students physical and mental breaks that help create a healthy and fun day at school.
When kids practice meditation, they actively strengthen their ability to learn. YOGO is based on simple yoga and meditation exercises that increase childrens focus and concentration.
"YOGO is a lovely digital tool that works really well as a break in between teaching activities..."
Calm surroundings support kids' learning abilities
Quiet surroundings make way for immersion and strong social relations. Exposing children to quiet surroundings enables them to, not only learn better, but also makes way for a quiet mind. Upon playing a YOGO, your students will not only calm down completely. They will be open and receptive to whatever learning challenges they are faced with.
