We are the longest running children’s wellbeing activity class in the UK, launched in 2004.
Inspired by yoga, our creative, developmental classes for babies & children have been created by paediatric physiotherapists, educationalist & yoga teachers
Using music, yoga-inspired movement & storytelling, the sessions are underpinned by developmental theory & the National curriculums.
During the fun sessions, children are learning vital life skills & additionally developmental targets are being met.
If you are lucky enough to have a Tatty Bumpkin centre in your area, it will be run by a dedicated small business owner, if you don’t, & you would like to find out how you can run your own Tatty Bumpkin classes, click here.
Our programme is unique, & whilst inspired by the key holistic benefits of yoga, it offers so much more to children, parents & educators through the developmental links & carefully crafted multi-sensory stories.
our classes help children age 0-7 to be bendy, giggly, clever and strong:
bendy: develops flexibility through yoga
giggly: enhances creativity with fun multi-sensory stories & original music
clever: aids development with smart links to support the early years curriculum
strong: promotes wellbeing & relaxation
Teaching Tatty Bumpkin gives me a job satisfaction like nothing I have experienced before! It keeps me on my toes, makes me nervous and excited and delighting children cannot be beaten!!

I love the relaxation in the classes as I learnt breathing to try at home which helps me when I can’t sleep

All the children have improved their communication & social skills. They all look forward to coming to the sessions each week & come away talking to the rest of the class about what they have been doing.
