Kids YogaVida classes run for all ages from pre-schoolers to teens and the whole family in schools, at children’s parties, in family workshops and as one-to-one private sessions including sessions for children with Autism and ADHD*.
Classes are filled with games and imaginative stories for a fun and creative exploration of mindfulness and wellbeing! The wonders of animals and nature are explored to learn classic yoga poses and develop strength, flexibility, coordination and balance, as well as meditation, guided relaxation and breath work for supporting calm, happiness, self awareness and self regulation. Positive affirmations are learnt for confidence and self esteem. Respect and kindness to ourselves, others and the wider community is nurtured. For the older years emphasis is placed on emotional awareness and stress/anxiety relief which supports students preparing for and during exams and life’s challenges.
*One-to-one Yoga sessions for children with Autism and ADHD take a therapeutic approach to soothe the nervous system, organise the vestibular, proprioceptive and kinaesthetic systems and provide self regulating tools.

"I was really impressed by how you teach Toby, and children in general. It was the first time I'd sat and watched your children's yoga class. This is most definitely at talent you have, to interact and teach to, quite frankly, a tough crowd! I have tried and failed to interest him in yoga on many occasions, so in total admiration with how you kept his attention and flexibly responded to his off-piste demonstrations. He absolutely loves you. You're a wonderful teacher."
“My son has ASD/PDA and loves his yoga sessions, relaxing is something he finds really hard to do and the poses and stretches help give him a focus for this. Even when he finds it hard to engage Mel perseveres with him and he often repeats or talks about things it seemed he wasn’t listening to so if def goes in ! Mel is amazing with him always full of new innovative ideas to try and help him get maximum benefit from his sessions. She is well prepared yet ready to abandon plans and be guided by my son in the moment if more appropriate. Thoroughly recommend Mel, such a lovely caring and patient lady.”
