Children’s Yoga

When children become overstimulated, anxious or just tired, the opportunity for structured quiet time with yoga can help them to integrate their natural vitality with a sense of safety, connection and calm.

Time for a Little Rest Children’s Yoga sessions include activities such as: playful movement, chair yoga, mindfulness, breath awareness, breathing exercises, guided relaxation, yoga nidra, a restful story, poem or prose.

I bring many decades of practising yoga and meditation to Time for a Little Rest Children’s Yoga and years of experience with teaching children’s yoga.

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).

Time for a Little Rest Children’s Yoga is tailored to the needs and wishes of the individual child or small group for children of all ages from babies to teenagers.

At REST AND WRITE Day Retreats, you will be offered opportunities to recover your natural vitality, clarity and calm.

You will be introduced to restful writing and meditation practices ideal for shaping neural pathways, befriending your nervous system, and settling into a personal safe-haven of restorative presence and rest.

“We did an easy-to-follow, guided meditation that left me feeling deeply, even profoundly relaxed and thoroughly refreshed.”

Mentoring and Supervision

Initially, iRest Yoga Nidra is offered as a guided meditation; ultimately it is a self-paced programme of self-inquiry.

The simple steps of iRest increase resiliency, release stress and restore a sense of balance and control.

“The iRest was so relaxing and unexpectedly gave me insights that can help my life.”
