Yoga has considerable mental, emotional and physical benefits for children and youths. It is a well recognised fact that children suffer from stress – even as early as primary school. A regular physical or creative activity helps, but Yoga has been shown to offer the benefits of both. It helps them:

  • improve their focus, concentration and memory;
  • gain a better understanding of their emotions and how to deal with them, leading to a more positive attitude and a calmer and quieter mind;
  • improve their self-awareness and confidence in a non-competitive environment;
  • increase their strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance in harmony with their natural development;
  • improve energetic circulation and hormone regulation

I currently teach Nursery and Reception aged children at school and occasionally run Introduction to Yoga workshops for youths and 'tweens'. Young people of 16+ and younger people of secondary school age who have followed the introductory course are welcome to join my mixed ability evening classes.

I am qualified to teach from the age of 2.5 and DAB checked.

DofE award

The Duke of Edinburgh award requires youths to learn a new skill – Yoga not only allows them to work towards their certificate but teaches valuable life skills. I been an assessor for several young people already.
