This study was designed to qualitatively examine fifteen classroom teachers’ experiences in implementing a movement integration (MI) program, TAKE 10!®, using the comprehensive school physical activity program framework. Data were collected through observations, semi-structured interviews, and questionnaires. Barriers to MI implementation included time and space constraints, whilst facilitators were gaining knowledge during training and developing competencies through experience. Reasons for program continuance included scheduling MI into weekly routines, children's request for the program, and collaboration among teachers. Suggestions for teachers’ professional development related to MI are provided in view of the study's findings.
