Hello, my name is Ania and I am the owner of CIBY Prestwich and a specialist teacher.
For over fifteen years I have worked with children and young people with complex needs, sensory processing difficulties and autism. I have always been curious about discovering new approaches to promote their wellbeing. I realised how important it is for them to experience movement and how it connects the individual to themselves and others. Introducing elements of yoga in my sessions had an immense impact on my students. It created opportunity for a new meaningful interaction. I discovered that yoga was something more than a movement activity, it provided the structure they needed and ‘just right’ physical challenge. They were learning to experience calmness and becoming more aware of their bodies and emotions.
For me yoga is a philosophy, it is a way of being, through experiencing a unique connection between body and mind. It’s a way of being kind to myself.
I believe yoga can inspire and empower children to become more aware of their bodies and emotions. They become more resilient, ready for learning and everyday challenges.
I am looking forward to meeting you and inviting you on our Tatty Bumpkin adventures!
Hi, my name is Adele, and I’m a teacher for Children Inspired by Yoga Prestwich.
I worked with Ania at a school for children with complex needs and learning difficulties, and was thrilled when she invited me to join her on this Children Inspired by Yoga journey. I have a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies, in which I explored the social, cultural, political and developmental contexts that affect contemporary experiences of childhood and youth. I love captivating children’s imaginations using creative, multi-sensory methods that aid development and make learning fun.
I personally enjoy using yoga as a way to strengthen and destress. Yoga is an incredible way to create connections between the mind and body, and I feel it’s important for children to have this level of body awareness to promote positive mental health and emotional well-being.
At CIBY Prestwich, we guide children through an adventure using movement, story-telling, music and sensory props to give children a holistic experience, but most importantly we have fun! I hope you join myself and Tatty on our adventures!
