Little Blossom Yoga was created by Natalie; mother, qualified and experienced yoga teacher, primary school teacher and Key Stage 1 leader - with a wealth of experience of teaching yoga to adults and children, in and out of school settings.
Yoga has helped me in so many ways on my journey to motherhood - and I am passionate about supporting women as they transition into becoming a mummy, through Yoga for Pregnancy and Post-Natal recovery classes alongside Baby, Toddler & Children's Yoga sessions.
Achieving an MA in Education from University of Winchester through my school-based research into the positive benefits of teaching children's yoga in Mainstream/SEN primary schools; 'Little Blossom Yoga' was formed through the culmination of knowledge, enthusiasm and eagerness to help people find their balance in life; from the womb, right through into adulthood!
Using the hands-on skills gained through over a decade of teaching Yoga in school and through extensive and thorough training and professional development with Unity Yoga (200 hours Yoga Teacher Training), Jill Jones, Birthlight (Pregnancy, Baby, Toddler & Perinatal Yoga Training), Rainbow Kids Yoga, Teen Yoga (Children & Teenagers) and also through 1:1 teaching experience; I draw upon key principles of yoga as well as developing original ideas to engage and inspire each Little Blossom Yogi and their grown-up's imagination.
Weekly Pregnancy, Post-Natal classes, plus Parent and Baby, Toddler & Teen Yoga Workshops strive to create a nurturing, caring and creative environment so you and your little ones feel relaxed; ready to explore and imagine, learning the benefits of new movements, mindfulness & massage, learning or regaining previously held yoga skills, together in a respectful, harmonious and compassionate environment.
It is my belief that yoga is inherently inclusive and should be enjoyed by all; everybody should be able to benefit from yoga regardless of age, race, gender or income.
From our humble beginnings, we have welcomed a host of wonderful teachers who uphold the LBY ethos facilitating regular classes and workshops in our community.
