I have always been interested in yoga and mindfulness. My background includes experience working with school and nursery aged children.
I am is passionate about Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) – my dissertation at University of Chichester focused on investigating the possible benefits of DMP when working with children on the autistic spectrum.
My desire is to teach the beauty of authentic movement for the community.
My name is Jennie and I love every minute of teaching children yoga. I am mum to 2 children and my background involves working with vulnerable children in the care system.
I am currently studying for a Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Yoga as well as a qualification in Mental Health awareness in children so love having the opportunity to introduce mindfulness, self-awareness and relaxation into my sessions along with a large helping of fun!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks with the dog, practising yoga and pilates and the occasional early morning run.
I am the owner of Children Inspired by Yoga Rochester and your first port of contact for enquiries and bookings.
As a small business owner, I look forward to having a positive impact in my local community, living a life with greater purpose, and doing something I love!
Yoga became part of my life in 2000 and I know the immense benefits it has brought to me and my students. My passion is to empower children with physical movement, mindfulness and relaxation strategies for learning and life.
My specialist training include several adult yoga and advanced children yoga courses including Yoga Alliance Professionals certifications.
“Anna and her teachers have been coming to our Pre-school since June 2019, the children and staff enjoy it so much! There is a new pose every week, with a theme and interactive activities, props and music to keep them interested. It has been amazing to see the children looking forward to seeing Tatty Bumpkin, they are showing us the poses throughout the week, we would highly recommend this.”
Manager, ABC Pre-School
“My usually very fast pace, energetic 6 year old wants to go every week. Anna really manages to hold his attention and/or go with the flow if he shows interest in one part particularly so that he can explore that further.”
"My kids 8 & 9 loved it. They enjoyed the time and feel much more able to practice at home. The positions were fun and easy to do with a enjoyable story to aid focus for them. This was originally for my girl to help with anxiety but its now a family session."
Louisa, Mum of 2
“The yoga sessions have been a great addition to our curriculum at Kloisters this year. The children really look forward to Anna arriving and they love exploring all of her exciting props. They have learnt the routine of the session and actions to songs very quickly. We couldn’t recommend her and the sensory themed yoga enough.”
