Yoga Intelligence Program for Early Education (YIPEE)


VALUES

The Values we teach in our Yoga Intelligence Program for Early Education have passed the test of time. Throughout the world, regardless of religious and cultural differences, these values are central to how well we function as individuals and communities.

RESPONSIBILITY – Understanding that the actions we take can impact our own well being, the wellbeing of others, and even the environment.

CIVILITY– Learning that no individual exists in isolation leads to the cultivation of personal behaviours that extend beyond each individual, benefiting not only ourselves but the communities and ecosystems in which we live.

COMPASSION – Recognising our ability to empathise with, and aid, those less fortunate than ourselves.

RESPECT– We can learn from the wisdom and experience of others.

INTEGRITY – Learning the importance of aligning actions and words with your values. This often requires truthfulness and consistency in our actions.

RESILIENCE – The ability to cope with setbacks or adversity.

GRATITUDE – Our ability to appreciate and be thankful for what we have, or are given.

COURAGE – The ability to overcome our fears with grace and not be intimidated by the unknown.

HUMILITY – teaches us self worth, without the need to openly display it to others.

CLASSES

We offer meaningful, interactive and fun yoga classes in your classroom or gym which foster body awareness, build resiliency, improve social skills, increase calm, cultivate self-regulation and reduce stress. Our custom yoga classes are affordable and taught by instructors that are both experienced and inspiring.

BENEFITS OF YOGA IN A SCHOOL SETTING

Anti-bullying, health and wellness, and character education are common themes in Australian schools today, all focusing on educating the whole child, mind, body and spirit. Yoga, by nature, supports this learning.

The following are some of the benefits of yoga to support the education of the whole child, thus maximizing the learning process:

  • Provides students healthy ways to express and balance their emotions
  • Promotes a more relaxed, comfortable state of being – the perfect state for teaching and learning
  • Brings students into the present moment – the most basic requirement for learning
  • Encourages community and connectedness within the classroom
  • Helps to create an atmosphere of confidence, enthusiasm and non-competitiveness where everyone can succeed
  • Provides opportunities for beneficial motor breaks throughout the day
  • Eases anxiety and tension (such as pre-test or performance jitters)
  • Enhances focus, concentration, comprehension and memory
  • Provides opportunities for reflection, patience and insight, reducing impulsivity and reactivity
  • Supports social and emotional learning
  • Improves listening skills
  • Wakes up sluggish minds and creativity as needed
  • Enhances organizational and communication skills
  • Improves posture, assisting students to sit comfortably for long periods
  • Enhances motor skills and balance
  • Improves mind/body awareness and connection
  • Improves confidence and self-esteem
  • Encourages respect for oneself and others
  • Creates a calm, harmonious classroom

Pre-school/ Day Care
Preschool yoga classes enable children to develop healthy habits from an early age. Ahimsa Health’s ‘YIPEE’ classes support physical, emotional and mental wellness and development of children aged 2-5 by combining yoga poses with engaging discussions and stories which exercise social, sensory and motor skills. We offer an extensive list of themes to compliment those taught in your Preschool program.

Primary
Primary students are energetic, impressionable and often easily distracted. Yoga for this age aims to improve strength, flexibility and co-ordination in an environment of cooperation, respect and well being. Ahimsa Health’s ‘YIPEE’ classes help children aged 5-12 learn through fun yoga poses, partner poses, yoga games and more to build body awareness, increase focus and foster self-esteem.

YIPEE weekend workshops
Our YIPEE weekend workshop allows students to explore numerous yoga and mindfulness skills in a safe, non-competitive manner. These skills improve inner peace, reduce stress and promote focused learning allowing children to handle any situation with calm, a positive attitude and flexibility.

Yogi Dani

YIPEE Founder


From a young age it was clear to Danielle that “wellbeing” was a multifaceted quality, and the clear goal was ‘how’ to achieve optimum health and happiness. It seemed naturally sequential that health and happiness could be the most valuable quality that she could share with others.

Danielle began building the required skills as soon as her schooling was finished. Danielle began as a Personal Trainer in 2007, added Remedial Massage in 2008, dabbled in Reiki (Level 2), and studied subjects of psychology, anthropology, and food science at The University of Adelaide.

During this study period Danielle enjoyed a regular practice in Bikram yoga. The movement, sweat, and focus was all very alluring, but lacked a depth of knowledge in the ancient wisdom of the practice. A defining moment came in 2010, when she began studying Ashtanga Yoga with Youngblood Roche in Adelaide. It was here that Danielle found a method of ‘wellbeing practice’ worthy of a life long pursuit. Danielle did her first Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in Salento, Italy in 2011. This 200 hour course was conducted by western industry standards but left Danielle with the feeling that she had merely glimpsed a shadow of what is true yoga practice. Danielle traveled to India to come another 200 hour YTT soon after. It was scientific, and detailed with valuable teaching by an experienced teacher – still however, Danielle did not find the true essence of the practice, that she was longing to learn.

Danielle traveled to Mysore, India and practiced at the K Pattabhi Jois Ashtange Yoga Institue (KPJAYI) under the guidance of Sharath Jois, the lineage holder of Ashtanga. It was here at KPJAYI, that Danielle caught a glimpse of the secrets of life force buried deep within the nervous system. Intricately weaved through the ‘eight-limbed’ practice, that requires ‘asana’ practice six days per week, Danielle began to practice dedication, truthfulness, self-knowledge, non-harm, and purity. So far, Danielle has partaken in nine months of training with Sharath (over three years), who she now considers to be her ultimate yoga teacher. Despite the time already committed, Danielle considers this to be only the very beginning steps of a lifelong practice.

Danielle founded Ahimsa Health in Adelaide, where yoga classes are regularly conducted in Mile End. Currently, these classes are for a small, but focused and committed group of adults. .

In 2015 the Yoga Intelligence Program for Early Education, or “YIPEE”, was born. In the face of an increasingly complex world, in both a social and environmental sense, Danielle drew on her knowledge of yoga philosophy, environmental science, and social engineering, to develop a program for our next generation. YIPEE focuses on well-being and sustainability, to help equip children with skills that they will need for the world they will inherit. Danielle now runs this program in locations all over Adelaide, and soon intends to be delivering YIPEE workshops internationally.

In her spare time, Danielle enjoys taking her two Weimaraners for beach walks, and growing her own fresh herbs and vegetables. On Tuesdays, she makes her much loved masala chai to share with her yoga class using the recipe that she learned while in India.

Yogi Rosie

Creative Director


Yogi Rosie is a fitness nut who caught the yoga bug over five years ago when a certain friend of hers (yogi Dani) encouraged her to try out a different form of fitness. Not naturally flexible, Rosie was skeptical yoga was for her, but it didn’t take long for her to fall in love with Ashtanga. The focus, the breathing, and the gentle pushing of the body’s limitations became Rosie’s new workout of choice, and she’s remained dedicated to the practise ever since.

A graduate of a bachelor of creative writing with honours at Flinders University, Rosie has a flair for creativity and a passion for language. She has worked on a number of websites as a content developer and editor and has published a handful of articles in literary magazines. Rosie also has experience teaching creative writing to children aged 5-12 when she ran workshops in primary schools during her final year of university.

Rosie has been practising Ashtanga yoga under the expert eye of yogi Dani on a weekly basis for the past three years. She is on her way to completing the half primary Ashtanga series and will gain her
RYTT 200 hours certificate very soon. As well, she recently completed two weeks of intensive yoga teacher training for children with Ahimsa Health.

Yogi Rosie’s hobbies include enjoying great coffee at hipster cafes, hanging with her cat Fergus, going for long walks in beautiful places, and working on her YA fiction novels… and yoga, of course!
