Hi! My name is Carina de Wit and I am so proud to say that I own the Tatty Bumpkin Franchise in and around Kingston.
My moto in life is ‘Inspiring children is inspiring the world – its up to us to empower the younger generation with the necessary tools and skills to make a difference.’
I am a qualified EYFS Teacher and I’ve now started my new exciting adventure with Tatty Bumpkin where I can combine my interests in well-being and children’s development. Having practiced yoga on a daily basis myself I only speak from experience and can honestly say that it has transformed my life and it is my mission to inspire the next generation and enable them to experience all the benefits I have form yoga.
Tatty Bumpkin classes empowers children of all abilities to be confident and successful in their early years along with providing a fun way for children to develop a variety of important skills in a nurturing, non-competitive environment.
I love teaching these classes so much and watching children grow and develop new skills to live the happiest life they possibly can.
