Yoga for Kids
Louise is a certified children’s yoga teacher! After completing her training in 2019 with Jessica Wingate, author of “Children Do Yoga”, Louise began teaching yoga for kids for Moving Waves and in schools, both live and online. Louise also delivers CPD workshops in education, promoting the lifelong value of yoga and mindfulness for little ones.
“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation” – Dalai Lama
Yoga for kids is an absolutely joyous thing! Louise’s classes are jam packed with storytelling, adventures, poetry, singing, chanting, movement, dancing, sensory explorations and games, giving kids an energising introduction to yoga philosophy, asanas, meditation and mindfulness. Every class is different and built around a specific theme from exploring the dinosaurs, pretending to be pirates or travelling to outer space! Each class is designed to encourage self awareness, promote self expression, develop confidence, stimulate imagination and champion creative learning. Yoga for kids allows children to learn about themselves and world around them in a kind, nuturing and supportive space.
Classes take place live and via Zoom (yoga for kids translates incredibly well online!) Louise holds an updated DBS, has completed The Key’s safeguarding training (in partnership with One Education) and is insured via Yoga Alliance Professionals.
Join Louise for some classes on Zoom this half term! The classes are inclusive and accessible and work well for ages 4-10, but all children younger or older are also welcome to come and give it a go!

Mindful Movement with Moving Waves
In addition to the classes for kids, Louise also delivers Mindful Movement for ages 18+ for Moving Waves via Zoom every Thursday evening. Louise takes influence from both her dance and yoga teacher training to deliver a class deeply rooted in breath/ body connection. The class consists of dynamic vinyasa sequences that are balanced out with relaxing stretches/ poses plus mindfulness and breathwork techniques. Each week Louise guides the practitioners through a differently themed class, often responding to what’s happening in the world at that time (i.e. tailored to the messages of Stress Awareness Month or Mental Health Awareness Week). Get in touch with Moving Waves to find out more about this class and how to book. Moving Waves operates a “pay what you can” system for this class.
