Kids Yoga

Kids yoga classes teach skills to help develop and maintain physical and mental wellbeing.

My approach revolves around breath-led dynamic yoga, blending body and emotional awareness with mindfulness. Children are equipped with skills to understand their feelings and practice self-regulation – tools they need for a resilient and balanced future.

I provide classes in schools and at yoga studios.

A regular yoga practice can help address the recently evidenced decline in children’s wellbeing by:

  • Reducing stress and building resilience
  • Improving sleep patterns
  • Developing focus and concentration
  • Improving academic outcomes
  • Developing self-esteem and body confidence
  • Enhancing strength, flexibility, balance and co-ordination

“When I’m on my mat, I feel I can just be myself.”

Classes in School

I believe in providing yoga classes during the school day as a way of making the sessions accessible for all. Practicing together as a class builds community and connection. The students and teachers can take the tools they learn with them back to the classroom and beyond.

The sessions are linked to the following curriculum targets:

  • Relationships and Sex Education (e.g. making decisions about health and wellbeing)
  • Physical Education (e.g. balance, agility, coordination, control and flexibility)
  • language and vocabulary development (e.g. listen, respond and maintain attention)

A standard programme gives children 30 minutes of yoga once a week over the course of a half-term, a six weeks course.

“The children love it, especially the blanket time at the end of a session. It makes them calmer and they are more focused when we go back to the classroom."
