MiniYoga is an internationally accredited and approved infant Yoga programme designed specifically for children.

MiniYoga can feature as one of your weekly PE lessons for Nursery, Reception KS1 and KS2 children taught by one of our fully qualified instructors.

Benefits of Yoga

  • increases strength and flexibility
  • helps children to relax, unwind, and calm down to reduce stress and anxiety
  • helps them sleep better
  • promotes interaction between adult and child, and between multiple children
  • improves their fine and gross motor skills, as well as their coordination
  • develops self-confidence, self-expression, and body awareness
  • promotes a healthy, active lifestyle

The benefits of yoga go beyond just exercise. MiniYoga takes children on an explorative journey, fuelling their imagination and strengthening and stretching their core muscle groups whilst having fun.

Children learn how to relax and focus on their breathing too using self calming techniques. A perfect class to keep all children calm, peaceful and flexible.

Whether it's using the 'relaxed pose' during carpet time, 'glove breathing' to calm or simply enjoying the 'reach for the stars' pose, it is wonderful to see the children apply what they are learning in the mini-yoga sessions to everyday school life. – The Mead
Last half term I had the privilege of observing Rowan working with two of our pupils, during one to one Yoga sessions, on two occasions. I was so impressed with her use of sensory lighting and music to create a calming therapeutic atmosphere. She successfully used Compression Therapy, using a blanket, feather and deep breathing with amazing results; a calmness and stillness in a usually lively and restless child. She demonstrated lovely rapport and an engaging manner throughout the session. I wish her success with any opportunity she has to take her skills into any other schools.
As the year draws to a close I would just like to thank you for the work that you have done with us this year at Epsom Primary and Nursery School.As a school we place a high focus on wellbeing for all stakeholders and I think we can safely say that your relaxation and mindfulness techniques have impacted positively on both children and staff throughout the school.The new yoga enrichment has been a real hit with the children and the relaxation training that we all participated in can be seen supporting children in class in a variety of ways and also given teachers food for thought in managing their own wellbeing.We look forward to working with you again next year.  
Rowan and I met some years ago now as she used to come to me on a regular basis for reflexology treatments as I was looking for an alternative option for some health problems. It was through her reflexology that I began to feel better and more confident and finally, after years of not knowing quite what was wrong, was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Through all of it, the regular reflexology with Rowan was a godsend to managing and keeping my condition under control. She is sensible and pragmatic and naturally her business has flourished. We share a passion for young people and mindfulness and I am excited about sharing that journey with her as she introduces yoga practice to a younger audience, which will no doubt enable our young people to deal with the stresses of growing up in an ever complex world.
Thanks so much for the course it helped me to retain a positive mind set throughout.
Thank you for your knowledge and expertise - your classes were excellent.
As a first time mummy- to-be, I was absolutely petrified about the whole concept of giving birth. However, signing up for Rowan's HypnoBirthing course was the best thing I ever did! The techniques my husband and I learnt meant that I was at home for the first 48 hours of my labour in a calm and peaceful environment and only went into hospital at the end and calmly gave birth to our baby girl! 6 weeks later, Rowan was teaching me baby massage with my daughter which our little girl adores to this day. Words cannot express how grateful my husband and I are for Rowan's help in providing our daughter such a wonderful start to life and would recommend her courses to anyone!”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so, so much for your amazing course and additional support you provided us with. If we're to be honest with my Dad passing away suddenly less than three weeks before we gave birth I had somewhat loss my way with the HypnoBirthing and was feeling overly anxious about the birth and returning to a hospital. But when the time came all the practise we had put in and the ability to return to a state of calm that you had taught us instinctively kicked in.The birth was amazing, It was so empowering to be able to do everything at our own pace without any undue intervention.Our little boy, is incredibly calm and still loves to listen to the HypnoBirthing CD. Once again thank you so much, the birthing experience you enabled us to have will remain with us for a lifetime.
I attended your baby massage class four years ago. Our family has grown and that 12 week old baby has started school now. Just wanted to say how much I looked forward to your classes and what a great teacher you were. I still treasure those early memories as a first time mum! Thank you!
Just wanted to thank you so much for the knowledge and skills we learnt with you. Not only was the course enjoyable and took place in a safe and relaxing environment; the   confidence we had in the approach you taught us enabled us to take the HypnoBirthing theory and use them to make our labour adventure a lot more calm and positive.Our little boy, was born as an unplanned home birth! I can't tell you what a difference     having those techniques and knowledge meant.  Thanks to your course my Husband was amazing, he kept me focused and I was able to concentrate on the birth rather than the drama that an emergency home birth could have been!HypnoBirthing and your course will be something that we attribute to the amazing birth of our little boy and have already spread the HypnoBirthing word. Thank you!
