Testimonials:

" Laura's approach is creative, relevant, holistic and fun. You will leave with a deeper appreciation of what children's yoga can look like and why it is so important!

Laura is one of the most positive, knowledgeable and encouraging teachers I have ever met. Do it!" - Caroline, Primary School Teacher

“Firstly, I would like to say that Laura is a fantastic, caring and knowledgeable teacher. I learned so much over the 10 day course, all of which I now feel confident to instantly use to teach my own children's yoga and meditation classes.

Laura instantly made me feel at ease and part of the group, all of whom arrived with a range of multicultural teaching and yoga experience. Her considerable depth of knowledge and practical experience of yoga, meditation, child development, teaching across the age ranges and pedagogical methods were instantly apparent and confidently communicated to each member of the group.

Laura made sure that there were many opportunities to practically apply what we were learning within the group and within a class with the local children.

If you are thinking of attending one of Laura's courses, do not hesitate. It will be the journey of a lifetime both for yourself and for the children you will teach afterwards.”

-Alex, Early Years Educator
