Yoga for children


Parrot pose – fun at Northfield nursery!


Finding your own inner superhero!

I offer yoga classes aimed at children of all ages from 3 upwards. Children gain in so many ways from learning yoga at a young age, and they really enjoy it. We have SO much fun!


 I’ve held classes at a variety of schools and nurseries, including Northfield and Willowbrae Community Centre, Abbeyhill Primary, Royal High and Parson’s Green Primary and recently for the tennis club at Merchiston Castle School. If you are are teacher or parent who would like yoga in your school, get in touch on 07429 540849 or

The sessions I offer are 30-45 mins long  and are formatted according to age. For the wee ones, the sessions are based around stories with songs and actions that include many different yoga postures. As I create the stories myself, I link them to the curriculum and to fit the seasons and major holidays. For the older primary children, cooperative, fun games are best. This way the children are learning facts and concepts from foreign languages, geography and science through actions and songs, and positive and healthy messages from good nutrition to the value of cooperation. For teens, we concentrate on relaxation and concentration skills that will help them navigate the academic and social stresses that come with secondary school. So far, I’ve had great feedback from staff, parents and children.

I’ve been a yoga teacher since 1996, and I graduated in Social Psychology which included Developmental Psychology. I’ve studied Anatomy, Physiology and First Aid. I’ve worked as a teacher in primary and secondary schools in the U.K. and the Caribbean. I’m fully insured and have a certificate from Disclosure Scotland. I’m currently studying for an MA in Arts and Cultural Management at QMU, and working towards C2 (translator level) French.
I’ve taught senior officials at the UN, heads of state, the British Royal household, billionaire CEOs, Hollywood A listers, opera singers and NBA players, but bringing the joy of yoga into a school day is my favourite yoga of all!
