Hello everyone! My name is Julie and I run Children Inspired By Yoga Milton Keynes, South Northants, North Bucks and Beds.
I came to Children Inspired By Yoga over five years ago now, and I am continually inspired by all the children I teach, every day. The Sanskrit word ‘Namaste’ sums up everything teaching yoga to children means to me – The light in me, honours the light in you’. Every child is unique, and has a special quality. In our classes, every child can achieve.
Seeing babies and children engage with the magic of Tatty and Baby Bumpkin – developing their little bodies and minds and helping them discover the basics of wellbeing for their future – fills me with joy with every adventure.
Teaching Tatty Guroo and Yoga Guroo in schools is a privilege to be a part of the children’s future learning journey, sharing wellbeing tools for teen life and beyond. Having suffered with anxiety, as a teen myself, I really want to share the magic that is yoga, so every child has the knowledge and ability to cope with whatever life may bring their way.
I’d love to meet you and your children, and share the magic of yoga with you too!
I live in Leighton Buzzard with my husband and two young daughters. I have enjoyed working with children and practising yoga for many years and when I found out about Tatty Bumpkin, teaching classes and putting my two passions together seemed the ideal path to take.
Mary is the longest serving member of our team, and has been teaching Tatty Bumpkin and Baby Bumpkin classes since 2017.
She has recently taken her 200hr yoga teacher qualification, and will be happy to offer staff wellbeing sessions to your settings.
Hi, my name is Kat. I am a geographer by profession and I always used to travel and work a lot in many places around the world. Family life has turned things upside down and I had to find a new challenge that fits around my everyday commitments.
I heard first about Tatty Bumpkin when Julie was teaching in my son’s pre-school. She managed to catch his attention (not an easy task) and have him talking about Tatty A LOT… I was pretty impressed and so, when the time was right and Julie was looking to expand her team, I took the opportunity to get on board. What a lucky day! Teaching Yoga with Tatty means for me to give children some of the most powerful and important tools for a healthy and happy life – movement (we stretch and bend), a positive and fun attitude (we giggle and laugh a lot) and the ability to calm our busy minds and souls – something that all of us need to practice more! I couldn’t think of a more rewarding and enjoyable way to work!
Hello everyone, my name is Vicky and I have been practicing yoga for nearly a decade now.
I had my little girl in 2017 and really wanted her to be part of my yoga journey, I took her to Baby Bumpkin and now Tatty Bumpkin, I absolutely loved the classes as does Flossy and I really wanted to be part of something special and help as many children as possible find their inner yogi and bring a little bit of calm into their world.
I've taken my son Harlow to the wonderful Baby Bumpkin class since he was 12 weeks old, after 7 months of pure fun & enjoyment, we decided Harlow was just a little too big & active to be attending any longer! I would recommend this class to all parents! It allows for special bonding time with you & baby, the opportunity to meet fellow parents and most importantly you learn truly fabulous gentle stretches & movements for baby to enjoy!
Eloise loved the Baby Bumpkin classes so much so she has now been doing them for two years! The baby and toddler classes are amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you xx
William loved Tatty Bumpkin classes, particularly the props that were used to illustrate the stories. He loved to dance and jump to the music and made some new friends. Would definitely recommend :-)
Thank you for the lovely classes me and Oliver went to this year with you 😊. They were honestly the nicest, relaxed classes we have been to. We have made some lifelong friends from going to Baby Bumpkin!

We have had the pleasure of doing the Tatty Bumpkin classes at our preschool and the children and us adults love it. It's a great session, and all the children get involved.

Our favourite class! The sessions run at a lovely pace and have just the right amount of music, sensory and yoga moves. Both my son and I leave happy and relaxed every week.

The staff said they were surprised at how well it went. They thought the children wouldn't listen but they got really involved and loved it!

We are more than happy with the yoga sessions, thank you so much to you and your team. I know the children look forward to their yoga each week. (Keystages 1 and 2)

The preschool children love their Friday yoga sessions with Julie. Her adventures are always fun and the staff join in too. She involves all the children throughout and listens to their ideas on what to have for breakfast, what footwear to have for their adventure and so on. It’s such a fun filled hour and we never want it to end. 😊

I can recommend Tatty Bumpkin with Julie Pearson. My daughter Lyra loves Julie and has done yoga with her since a few months old and is lucky enough to have her in her school now.
Sarah and Lyra (age 4)
What a lovely class! It was lovely to see essential elements of a yoga practice being retold in an accessible way for young children. Great for child development. Highly recommended.
