Keynote speakers:
Netia Prema Mayman – Shining the light of yoga on schools. Adapting and accommodating 21st century knowledge to ancient insight
Netia was a passionately enthusiastic English, Drama and Media teacher in comprehensive schools from 1982 to 2006 and left her role as a deputy head to become a local authority adviser, knowing she would teach again, but maybe not Macbeth. She opened the Virtual School for Looked After Children, Oxfordshire, which she led for 6 years. Over this period she learned that she had not known much of use, in  her preceding career, about many of her vulnerable students. 
She also worked as an Ofsted lead and conducted inspections in the north and south east. It is not entirely a joke when she says the best thing about teaching yoga in schools, is the bad karma it pays back, especially when she teaches the staff.
She discovered yoga when she had ME/CFS in her thirties and learned to make the condition her friend, appreciating what it had brought into her life and living next to her rajassic nature. From an early stage she knew that she wanted to bring yoga into schools, but had to wait.  After reconnecting with her Sivananda lineage in India in 2015 she trained as a yoga teacher and, with Laura Sewell, started Yoga in Schools in 2016. This work has been led by Swami Sivananda’s guidance: ‘Adjust, adapt, accommodate’.
