After working as a book editor for 15 years, I wanted a new challenge that could get me away from the computer screen. After the lockdowns, I wanted to move! I’d also seen the impact that not socialising and staying home had on my own young children.

I’d enjoyed ashtanga and Bikram yoga since my teenage years, so when I saw the opportunity to join Tatty Bumpkin on her adventures, I jumped at the challenge.

I’m now so happy to be able to do something that can help children mentally and physically in the post-Covid world. We provide them with tools to promote mindfulness for calmer minds, give them a structure to exercise and stretch so they release much needed endorphins, support their creativity with play and song, and give them a pause in their day to relax.

I offer private Baby Bumpkin classes, and Tatty Bumpkin in nurseries and schools.

Practising yoga and developing English language teaching materials for children have been part of my life for a long time now. So, teaching yoga to children has been a great way to combine these two passions! 
Going into schools and nurseries is a great break from my desk job, especially when we all have so much fun! I love how excited the children are to see Tatty Bumpkin, how keen they are to know what adventure they will have through the Giggle Tree, but most importantly,  I love seeing how their skills and confidence grow with each session. Every session is different, yet also familiar, and I think this is really key. At the end of each one we are all much happier, stronger and stretchier – including me!

Hi, i’m Hannah and I have been teaching Tatty Bumpkin kids yoga classes since 2019. My background is dance-based, and I am passionate about using movement in a therapeutic way. I first experienced yoga whilst studying for an Extended diploma in Dance and was drawn in by the benefits and positivity it brought to life.

Tatty Bumpkin children’s yoga classes have given me the opportunity to extend my practice of yoga and to witness how yoga movement, mindfulness and relaxation can help children to transform and grow. I have loved watching children engage and develop during the sessions, building in self confidence and emotional well-being.

I am the owner of Children Inspired By Yoga with Tatty Bumpkin in Oxford.

Yoga became an integral part of my life in 2008 when I fell pregnant with my first child and I know the immense benefits it has brought to me and my family. My passion is to empower children with physical movement, mindfulness and relaxation strategies for learning and life.

With the help of my fantastic team of teachers I have been delivering children’s yoga and mindfulness classes in schools and nurseries in Oxfordshire since 2012. I am a fully trained yoga teacher (BWY) and hold several children’s yoga certificates (Yoga Alliance and CACHE accredited).
