POSE OF THE WEEK
Let your eyes close. Let your body feel heavy. Let go of tension, let go of movement, let go of thoughts. Let this pose “savasana” be the pose that you do the best- relax, get yourself into a blissful relaxed state of mind and body. Don’t rush, don’t fidget. Just be ❤️
Laughter is the best medicine!
Kindness club teach laughter to everyone- regardless of age! Children, families, office workers in big corporations have all benefited from laughter yoga. We turn our giggles in to deep and hearty laughter- the kind of laughter that hurts your belly! When we laugh for a longer period of time endorphins are released lowering stress, strengthening our immune systems and helping us to create a more positive mindset. We simply feel better when we laugh!
I have developed a laughter yoga session designed specifically at families with children. The sessions are on zoom and are very affordable- it’s a wonderful way to connect with family and friends that we can’t see right now xIts amazing how this session can lift the spirits 💛 The laughter stays with you all day!Choose a time and a day to suit you and send the code out to your nearest and dearest 💛 I promise you belly laughs and big feelings of calm 💛
Our next session is on Zoom - get in touch for further details.

Get in Touch
These classes are not yoga classes as you might think! We don’t just “do the poses” - we laugh! we talk, we grow confident, we play! We learn how to bring yoga into our lives and how to live our very best lives. We plant the seeds of yoga from an early age and then help the seeds to grow. Studies show that 1 in four teenage girls suffer from some kind of anxiety. We are living in an epidemic of young men committing suicide. Something has got to give. We are committed to bringing our fun classes to children, teenagers and adults in the hope that we can help them to see that they are wonderful human beings. That they are incredible just the way they are!
Please get in touch if you would like me to deliver yoga in your setting.
I am so lucky to call this work 🙏
