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.

Children’s Holiday clubs
A lot of my working week is spent in schools- so a real highlight of the school holidays is spending quality time with the little yogi’s where we get the opportunity to really reinforce kindness and self love. The clubs are usually 10-4 at Dai’s house in N21. We play, craft, talk, and of course we do lots of yoga activities. Our next club is summer club- focusing on LOVE! ❤️

I started my yoga teaching journey a bit topsy turvey by qualifying as a yoga teacher then immediately concentrating on children- consequently for 10 years I had built up a gorgeous little business teaching children and just the odd adult class- then Covid hit and childrens yoga took a bit of a break! I felt like an imposter at first offering my adult zoom classes!!! but I have really poured myself into these classes and all the face to face classes I’ve taught since- I’m so happy with the teacher that I am becoming. My classes are heart led and heart full spaces. We have fun, not too serious, smiles and calm feelings are honestly guaranteed ❤️Anyone can practice with me regardless of age or ability- please come along.

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 🙏
