We humans are amazing
and each having an individual journey and experiences
These journeys have amazing HIGHS of happiness and joy, however in life ‘balance’ we also experience times that we are fraught with stress’s, difficulties and struggles.
During these times our minds, emotions and bodies can be effected and we can feel disconnected from ourselves and others questioning how to move forward.
As adults we can recall difficult times like these, some of these could have happened to us whilst as a child. Unlike adults children can lack the knowledge, experience, emotional and mental maturity to understand, cope and overcome these.
Many children can face some of these situations during their childhood
Many can then go on to be hurt and effected by these in other ways and experience
In recent years there has been growing recognition, research and endorsements surrounding the benefits of holistic tools like yoga, mindfulness, breathing exercises and compassion etc when going through difficult life circumstances. Please see the research section for information relating to the psychological and scientific studies and research done in these areas.
Believe-in are passionate and committed in introducing proven tools and techniques to both children, adults and families in the form of classes. Our children through the use of social stories, products and training within schools aim to bring these to children in various ways not just through a class. Our main aim is to help equip our children to be more aware of themselves emotionally, mentally and physically to help then cultivate and keep a healthy relationship with themselves and also know how to help and support their own healing processes should they experience difficult situations.
Our books have been specifically created and designed to be holistic, interactive and fun whilst exploring these situations through a character and a story. Through fun engaging activities children can learn fantastic tools like.... breathing exercises, relaxation techniques, yoga moves to help with balance/co-ordination and strength, mindfulness exercises, and the use of positive affirmations and sayings into their day.
I am a mother of three and a nana to one and like every parent and grandparent we only want the best for our children... for them to be happy, healthy and safe!
Like many parents I have been worried when they have struggled with bullying, lack of confidence, the transition between schools and during a family break up and even grief.
It is with these times with my own family and through my work educating and supporting young people that I am keen to bring the benefits I have known from my practice of yoga and mindfulness.
I trained in 2014 as a Children’s Yoga Teacher and continued training throughout the past few years to include:- family and community yoga teacher, adult hatha yoga teaching, transformational hatha yoga, restorative yoga, parent and baby yoga, mindfulness teacher training & healing trauma through yoga.
I am passionate and dedicated in helping children, young people and adults learn the tools and techniques from yoga, breathing, mindfulness etc that can help them through those difficult times, to themselves and take these forward.
I have recently written the first of many books to help bring these to children and young people. I have also designed and created t-shirts and bags with positive affirmations they can wear or carry with them to remind them that they have those powers within!
