Swimming with Excellence – Spring Youth Swim, Yoga & Mindfulness Camp (23-26 Sep 2019)

The AYA Team was thrilled to work with the SwE Squad members over four exciting days.

We commenced by asking the squad about the perceived benefits of yoga and mindfulness. See the results of their mind-map on the benefits of yoga, surrounding overall theme of santosa. In Yoga, santosa refers to “contentment.” Here the students translated it to mean “being OK with how things are today.”

We focussed each day on postures, breathing exercises and mindfulness. The students also enjoyed team teaching Sun Salutations and coming up with their own poses that they felt would benefit their performance in the pool.
