I am the owner of Children Inspired by Yoga, Clapham and live locally in Clapham with my son. I am passionate about yoga and child development and am a fully qualified baby and children’s yoga teacher with additional qualifications in teaching children with additional needs. I have studied the therapeutic use of arts in education and child counselling and psychotherapy and have worked for children with additional needs and emotional needs in a school setting using art therapy and counselling. I have also been practising yoga and enjoying the benefits myself for over 20 years. Everyone can benefit from yoga and I’m delighted to share it with local families, schools and children.
I and my team of teachers are all qualified Children Inspired by Yoga teachers and we are proud that our training courses are accredited by Yoga Alliance UK and CACHE [Council for Awards in Children’s Care, Health & Education] We also all hold enhanced CRB checks, are fully insured and have up to date Safeguarding and Paediatric First Aid training
We look forward to meeting you in our classes!
Your yoga classes and workshops are not only fun, but so beneficial to mind and body. The children look forward to their yoga class every week. They have learned techniques for strength and relaxation which helps them in everyday life. Yoga has also helped the children with focusing and giving them self-confidence. The best part is the instructor, Ivana ! Amazing teacher, loving and kind to all the children!

Ivana is absolutely brilliant, always on time with a warm, friendly approach and patience that is required when working with young children. What I find extremely valuable is that she has the ability to change her routine, be flexible and creative, according to the children’s needs and mood on the day. She is a very positive teacher and is a pleasure having her in our nursery.

Tatty Bumpkin visits are always enjoyed by the children and appreciated by staff. Children get a tremendous amount from the yoga classes it helps them be calm. Becks is so lovely with the children. Her calm soothing tone settles the children and a relaxing atmosphere follows her.The stretching and mindfulness the children do sets them up for a great day at nursery. I’d recommend Tatty Bumpkin to any Early Years provider.

My two children attend yoga classes in their nursery on Fridays with Tatty Bumpkin Clapham and they absolutely love it! My son asks me every morning what day of the week it is and every Friday he rejoices and says “it’s yoga day!” and rushes to get dressed. The certificate that each child receives is also a lovely idea and it’s nice to see the different postures used in the class on the back of the card…thank you for making my kids so happy and for introducing yoga to them which I hope they will keep practising all their life
The first class with Becks was amazing!! The children had a great time and I was very impressed with Becks as a teacher! Looking forward to more classes!
