Playful yoga and rest for young children

When young children become overstimulated, anxious or just tired, the opportunity for structured quiet time with yoga can help them to re-engage playfully with others and their environment.

During Kindergarten Yoga, children discover how to playfully integrate their natural vitality with a sense of safety, connection and calm.

Each 35-minute session includes: yoga-inspired creative movement, chair yoga; mindful sensory activities; breath awareness; guided relaxation and a restful story.

I bring many decades of practising yoga and meditation to Kindergarten Yoga and years of experience with teaching young children. I am a qualified Yoga Teacher (RYT), Primary School Teacher with Advanced Early Years (QTS EYPS) with an MA in Psychology and in-depth training in how to rest effectively (iRest Yoga Nidra Certified Teacher, Mentor and Supervisor).

Kindergarten Yoga is tailored to the individual child and offered 1:1 or in small groups.. Each child must be accompanied by an adult, who is welcome to join the fun and enjoy the benefits! Kindergarten Yoga is appropriate for children ages 4-6 years old.


Writing and meditation day retreats

Prolonged stress, overwork or intense activity can take its toll on your physical, mental, and spiritual health and leave you feeling tired, anxious and unsettled.

At REST AND WRITE day retreats, I offer opportunities to help you recover your natural vitality, clarity and calm.  You will be introduced to a proprioceptive writing protocol and restful meditation practices ideal for shaping neural pathways, establishing rapport with your symptoms, and creating your own unique safe-haven of restorative rest.

I am a certified iRest Meditation Teacher, Mentor and Supervisor. I bring 40+ years of practising meditation to these retreats as well as an MA in Psychology and in-depth training in how to rest effectively and integrate physical, mental and spiritual health for optimal wellbeing.

REST AND WRITE day retreats are offered as half or full days.
