Meet Sonshine Yoga
Be in the moment
I founded Sonshine Yoga in 2018 after deciding to turn my passion for yoga Into a business that could support children to build resilience, overcome adverse childhood experiences and otherwise develop the life skills necessary to reach their potential. I was inspired by the work of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Awareness movement which looks at the links between a child’s early life experiences, such as the loss of a parent or family mental health difficulties, in relation to their future health and lifestyle choices. As a Mum of two boys I can see first hand how these early experiences could impact on my children’s futures and wholeheartedly appreciate the importance of teaching them coping skills for navigating today’s stress filled world. My many years as a Primary Teacher has only served to deepen my passion for nurturing and developing children’s health and well-being and social skills.
My classes promote the use of mindfulness, breathing exercises and yoga asanas through stories, games and music. I started providing two classes a week for children aged between 3 and 12 and now run 5 weekly classes including classes for Teens, children with Additional Support Needs (ASN) and pop up monthly family classes.
I am also about the complete my teacher training for adults and look forward to welcoming you to Seasonal Yoga classes!
I look forward to meeting you and sharing in your yoga adventure.
