Adults who practice yoga rave about the benefits. Imagine if those benefits that we as adults feel started when you were a child. Would you feel and experience differently?
I believe each child is entitled to feel good, to move their bodies, to create and culminate creativity in any form they so desire. When I teach children yoga it is rooted in the experience and the intentions of traditional yoga but based on play, fun and story telling. I encourage creative thought, movement and mindfulness.

When I first began working with children, basically still a child myself, I was always questioning and learning and creating different ways to “let a child be a child”. I was fortunate to be a co-founder of a summer program in my hometown that supported children who had difficulty meeting the developmental milestones in the traditional schooling system prepare for entering or re-entering classes with their peers. Together with an amazing team of behavioral therapists, child-psychologists and speech therapists I was privately trained and guided practically on how to really and truly allow children the space to experience, learn, create and cooperate in an open forum.
When I was lucky enough to meet Catherine from Littlefeetyoga, she not only had this amazing way of understanding and connecting with children, she embodied her philosophy, she lived it. I was immediately inspired and have been so fortunate to experience and learn from her. I follow the Little feet yoga philosophy and am always learning and sharing on all levels with Catherine.
I work with educational professionals to develop a program in their schools and childcare facilities. I currently teach in the Ottawa and greater Gatineau area. If you have a school or childcare facility please and would like to consider having yoga and mindfulness in your school please contact me for more details.
