In 2010, I embarked on a journey to become a teacher and enrolled on a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education). I obtained QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in 2011 and have been teaching ever since, from nursery all the way up to Year 6.
I spent four years teaching English at the Ecole Bilingue, Paddington and I am currently a part-time French Nursery teacher at la Petite Ecole Bilingue in Notting Hill, London. The other half of my time is dedicated to spreading the love to kids and families through Kids Yoga & Mindfulness! My learning and teaching experience informs my Kids Yoga & Mindfulness planning, teaching and assessment.
In my Kids Yoga & Mindfulness classes, I implement successful behaviour management strategies and techniques that I have been refining over the years. My approach to children is warm, nurturing and responsive. I set limits and create proper boundaries, encouraging children to do the same with me and with each other.
Having discovered yoga in 2014, I pursued this new-found passion, practising regularly at the Jivumukti Yoga studio in Notting Hill, London. The emotional and physical benefits I reaped from this regular practise led me to want to deepen my practise even further. In 2018, I embarked on a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Sangye Yoga School, Notting Hill , whilst maintaining a full-time teaching position at the Ecole Bilingue, in Paddington. I currently teach adult Vinyasa yoga classes on a weekly basis in Ealing and on Zoom.
In February 2019, I completed a 3 day Rainbow Kids Yoga training with Benjamin Hart in Amsterdam. This teacher training provided me with a well-rounded, in-depth learning experience through a combination of play, practical theory and fun. Thanks to this training, I feel confident in planning, delivering and assessing Kids Yoga & Mindfulness classes and courses, designed specifically for children aged 2 to 11 years old.
My contagious love of life and learning informs and guides my teaching practice, which is focused on helping children in my classes better connect to themselves, others and their surroundings. Let your child get ready for plenty of fun, engaging and creative games and activities aimed to equip them with life-long tools to live a fulfilling life!
