“We need to fill a child’s bucket of self-esteem so high that the rest of the world can’t poke enough holes to drain it dry” Alvin Price
I offer a bespoke program of Yoga Classes specifically designed and tailored around your nursery or school’s needs. Through yoga I provide a really fun and creative way to engage children with the National Curriculumm and the Early Years Framework.
There benefits of Yoga for Children roughly fall into 3 areas:
increases flexibility, strength and builds co-ordination and balance
improves gross and fine motor skills
teaches children an awareness and application of their bodies
physical workout for the heart, lungs, muscles and central nervous system
Mental and Emotional
helps children navigate difficult emotions, stressful situations and moral choices
teaches techniques to help calm, switch off and rest
improves concentration and focus for longer periods
teaches self-discipline, confidence, freedom and ability to express themselves
teaches awareness of their own behaviour and the impact this has around them
helps build their own character and personality
helps children start to be become aware of the choices they make
they will develop a strong personal moral code that helps them make good choices daily
Having spent a year teaching yoga to children - I realise just how much of a mentor I've become to them, I've become the person they go to and trust that's not their teacher but feel they can speak to in a safe environment.
The work I now do with children is take this one step further and offer them them the tools they need to carve out their own identities, battle at their internal demons, change their closed mindsets so they are armed with lifelong skills; weapons of self preservation; to last them long after they leave me.
I also offer mindfulness mentoring programs in primary and secondary schools. These run for 6 or 8 weeks each designed to meet your needs and reach your goals using mindfulness activities, creating positive self awareness, journal writing, yoga poses, meditation and creating realistic good enough daily habits for a happier, healthier you.
I am a qualified yoga teacher that is DBS checked. I am passionate about helping provide our young people with a solid foundation that enables them to grow up happy, confident and compassionate people. I am an ambassador of The Girls Network providing mentorship and workshops to girls aged 14-19 in schools across London and have worked with schools across London and Essex delivering yoga programs.
If your school is interested in offering yoga I’d love to hear from you, please contact me more for information and pricing.
