Bend, stretch, balance, breathe and relax...the poses and activities focus on co-ordination, balance, flexibility, strength, confidence, attention, calmness and fun! Great foundations for achievements in sports, dance, learning and life.

Our active, creative stories and themes (as well as the music) inspire and motivate children. The concept has been developed by yoga teachers, physiotherapists and educationalists.

The Team

Tara McGregor

Tara McGregor

Hi! My name is Tara McGregor. I run Children Inspired by Yoga in Edinburgh. I teach classes and am usually the first port of call for enquiries and booking sessions for your setting. I find it very rewarding to collaborate with teachers in schools and nurseries, engaging children and young people to progress their physical skills, their confidence and introduce strategies for mental wellbeing. I am fully qualified to teach Tatty Bumpkin yoga from nursery age up to Primary 7 – both mainstream and for those with additional needs – as well as Baby Bumpkin yoga for 0 to 2 year olds.  I am currently qualifying to teach up to 16 year olds, so watch this space for classes for older children!

Claire McKinley works with me to deliver classes across Edinburgh. We are fully insured and we are members of the PVG scheme in relation to working with children.

Our classes are usually in nurseries and schools (more information here).
We can sometimes fit in private classes for groups of friends – if you would like to book sessions for yourself and some friends at home then do please get in touch edinburghwest@tattybumpkin.com.

Claire is fully qualified to teach Tatty Bumpkin yoga to up to 7 year olds (Primary 2/3) and to teach Baby Bumpkin yoga for 0 – 2yrs olds. “Hi! ​I hold a NC and HNC in childcare and Education and SVQ 4 in Social services (children and young people). I have over 15 years nursery experience. I have a strong passion for Health and Well-being of children. I came across Tatty Bumpkin when my son started classes at the age of 3 (he is 8 now). He came home every day telling me the story and showing me the poses. He got so much out of the classes and had great fun. I am so happy to share this fun with other children.”
