Discover Children's Yoga Classes that Cultivate Well-being and Joy

Welcome Note to Parents & Caregivers

On this page, you'll find an array of engaging children's yoga classes – some offered at the Thanet Youth & Community Centre, others in development – each designed to cultivate well-being, growth, and joy in your child's life.

These classes offer a wonderful opportunity to enhance the day-to-day well-being of your entire family. They aim to strengthen your child's present-moment awareness, self-regulation abilities, and their connection with themselves and others, ultimately promoting a more fulfilling and joyful life experience.

I believe in the transformative power of yoga and mindfulness for children, having witnessed its positive impact on my own family.

Through yoga and mindfulness practices, I've learned to navigate challenges, support my daughter during emotional moments, and appreciate the journey of parenthood. It is my pleasure to share these practices with you, hoping they enrich your family's journey together.

I am thrilled to embark on this beautiful journey with you and grateful for the opportunity to witness the incredible transformations that lie ahead.

​With Gratitude,​

Elements of a Children's Yoga & Mindfulness Class

 For thousands of years, wisdom traditions have taught us that paying attention to the present moment has powerful positive effects on our health. For children, the time-tested practices of yoga are a wonderful gateway into this world of mindful awareness.


When we focus inward and take time to cultivate our inner vision—what Dr Daniel Siegel calls “mindsight”— we develop specific circuits in our brains that support our abilities to balance our emotions, focus our attention, pause before acting on impulses, and increase our compassion for others and ourselves.

Choose from the following empowering Children's Yoga Journeys:

Ana Maria, beaming with energy, highlights the positive impact of Ashley's personalized approach (Increased strength & self-discovery).
"I have been doing Yoga for 5 years in london, lisbon and nyc and I was wonderfully surprised by the teacher Ashley. from her words, to the sense of opportunity, helping, the pace, the getting everyone's names and brief "why am I here", taste for music and simply those oils... Vinyasa gained a new look for me. You made me feel so balanced out, just when I needed that push. May your excellent work continue and your knowledge be taken further."
