Yvonne Morey: Yvonne has worked with young people for over a decade. Through counselling and teaching yoga to teenagers, she has had the opportunity to get a valuable insight into the teenage mind. Her passion for the welfare of young people spurred her on to work with Charlotta Martinus (TeenYoga founder) to design a course specifically for PE teachers. Yvonne has worked with children for many years and has often discovered that they experience a sense of disconnection, especially girls. Yvonne has an interest in resilience factors in young people and, in particular, the impact of sport and physical activity. In her experience most of the children she sees in counselling and those that are resistant to PE don’t feel connected to their physical bodies, have very little self esteem and don’t like PE. Yvonne feels we need to change the way we teach physical education so it is inclusive, sensitive and not always competitive. It is through this course that she hopes PE teachers as well as all those who work with or come in contact with young people can feel that they have a better understanding of the “hard to reach” students and another tool to help encourage ALL students to feel connected, present and well.
