Gemma fell in love with Yoga whilst pregnant with her third child in 2013. “Pregnancy Yoga and Hypnobirthing set the scene for the most wonderfully relaxed birth I could have hoped for”
Shortly after she was attending Baby Yoga sessions regularly and decided to train to teach. So with a 6 month old baby in arms she set off to London and her Birthlight journey began, a year later after successfully completing her coursework she became fully qualified. “My baby became my Yoga doll and it was so fun for everyone on my course to see how a real baby responded to Baby Yoga”
During her Birthlight training Gemma discovered Rainbow Kids Yoga which she felt could really benefit her older children. “My oldest child had recently come out of school as I saw it negatively affecting his confidence at just age 5. So once again she headed down to London, camping this time, with a baby, older children and husband who all got to participate at various points too!
I loved the Rainbow Kids Training – it was so diverse and encouraged us to find our strengths rather than try to become a certain “type” of Children’s Yoga teacher. I discovered my strengths are Acro Yoga and creative Yoga games.
How far we’ve come and what we do
Gemma has been teaching Children’s Yoga and Family Yoga since 2014 in community groups and within schools having helped over 700 children along with their parents and teachers enjoy Yoga! She teaches Yoga in a fun and engaging way that focuses on helping children recognise how their body gives them feedback, remembering to notice the feedback regulary and how to manage different energy states.
“I help the children build healthy habits of checking in on how their body feels and taking notice. This really empowers children to realise they already know how to manage stress and anxiety. I encourage them to figure out what works for them through trial and error of various mindfulness and breathing techniques. Once they know their favourite way to calm themselves in a challenging situation it means stress and anxiety doesn’t have to take over and become a problem for them.
Not local? No problem, we’ve got mail and Yoga Cards! 😉
Our tag line is “Get Connected and Get Stronger” and that’s exactly what we do through our at-home practice downloads and video tutorials, our Yoga Cards and our super emails which give you lots of tips and tools! We are passionate about families becoming stronger and better connected – to themselves as well as each other and we know Yoga should be practiced at home not just when in a studio. We are creating and testing new games and ideas all the time – I share them by email after my classes and you can keep up to date by joining our mailing list.
