I am the owner of Children Inspired by Yoga, Mid Sussex and live locally in Lewes 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 and my team of teachers are all qualified baby and children’s yoga teachers with Children Inspired by Yoga 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!
Tatty Bumpkin is a magical experience for children. It gives them the opportunity to explore their imagination, gain confidence and believe in themselves. For half an hour they live in a wonderful world of make believe, listening to and carrying out instructions using their own unique and creative skills. They move with confidence in a range of ways, safely negotiating space as they go. Tatty Bumpkin covers all areas of learning and development, in a fun, happy and calming environment.

Thank you Sarah, the active yoga session was fantastic. Thanks to your skilled story telling, movement and understanding of children, the session was loved by the children, practitioners and the feedback from the parents was great.

Sarah took time to find out about my children so that she could personalise the party to them. She instantly captured the attention and imagination of the children and kept them fully engaged and involved for an hour and a half! My girls had a fantastic time, as did all their guests. I would thoroughly recommend a Tatty Bumpkin party with Sarah.
