This project focuses on the possibility of integrating yoga and relaxation techniques in the new competency-based paradigms that will unfold in Catalonia during the years to come. To do so, this project engages theory and practice so as to assess the feasibility and application of the proposed techniques in a real high school environment. It must be clearly stated that the proposed practices are completely disconnected from religion, dogma or cultural Asian background; the present proposal, then, points out to detect and apply breathing and relaxation techniques that have been widely used both in western and Asian cultures in the form of mind-centering practices. To tackle with this goal, the present project deals with three different approaches with the main objective of providing the reader with an objective perspective regarding the possibility of applying relaxation techniques to the daily routine of Catalan high schools: -Yoga and relaxation to improve the classroom management. -Teachers and students in danger: the snowball effect unleashed by stress. Competency-based learning and relaxation/yoga techniques: a promising future together.
