This workshop is available to yoga teachers, nursery and primary school teachers, therapists, parents or anyone who would like to introduce yoga and mindfulness into the lives of children. It focuses on nursery, preschool and primary school age children and teaches the foundations for teaching a well-rounded yoga class.
This children’s yoga and mindfulness workshop provide a variety of tools for anyone who works with children. Whether you want to learn how to teach fun and engaging children’s yoga classes, or simply need a few resources for staying connected, this workshop is designed to support you.
I have a strong commitment to our future leaders, innovators, and visionaries. As a woman of influence, I am dedicated to changing education systems through the practice of kids yoga and mindfulness. My mission is to empower schools and communities with yoga and mindfulness practices to cultivate mental health awareness and wellness in children and teachers. Through evidence-based training, workshops, and resources, I aim to equip educators, health care professionals, yoga instructors, and anyone inspired to share yoga and mindful practices with youth to enable the integration of age appropriate yoga into the academic and home environments of children and teens.
Created from my own childhood trauma to give children the tools I never had growing up.
My story begins at Uzenmyethu Child Care Facility, Gugulethu township, Cape Town, South Africa.
Children have an increasing need to learn life skills that could extend beyond the school walls and promote health in other areas of their lives, especially in the context of crime, poverty, and riots.
As a long time yoga practitioner, this growing need inspired me to dedicate my life work to developing a Kids Yoga and wellness programme to effectively improve children’s mental health and wellness in schools and communities to equip young learners with tools to effectively approach and negotiate challenges life throws at them.
Since 2013, I have certified teachers and parents worldwide in the art and science of integrating kids yoga and mindfulness into educational environments and beyond. I have equipped them with the most valuable skills to share kids yoga and mindfulness education with all the beautiful children all over the world.
