our classes help children age 0-7 to be bendy, giggly, clever and strong:
bendy - develops flexibility through yoga
giggly - enhances creativity with multi-sensory stories and original music
clever - aids development with early years curriculum links
strong - promotes wellbeing and relaxation
Welcome to our Bendy, Giggly world! My name is Dai, I am lucky enough to own the North London Franchise of Tatty Bumpkin. Both myself and my small team of teachers love to go on adventures with Tatty Bumpkin and the children in the classes.
I am proud to say that all of us here at Winchmore Hill Tatty Bumpkin have a natural respect for children and a wonderful rapport with little ones.
I have been practising yoga for over 20 years and am a newly qualified hatha yoga teacher. I discovered Tatty 9 years ago and have not stopped smiling since! I love my job, love making a difference in a child’s day and I try to make each session the best one I have ever done.
I specialise in nurture classes and working with vulnerable children, I try to bring magic into their lives by exciting their imaginations. I love that the children often don’t even realise that they are exercising! – We have so much fun! My goal is to bring magical children’s yoga into the lives of all the children in North London.
I spend my days in schools and nurseries mainly- I can provide breakfast, lunchtime or after school clubs and am spending more time lately covering PPA time. I also do wonderful full day workshops where everyone in the school gets to go on a yoga inspired adventure. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk about how Tatty Bumpkin could benefit your school or nursery
My team and I hold a current Criminal Records Disclosure, first aid training and are all fully insured.

Love Dai xx
Attended your mother and baby yoga, and my second son attended 'bendy bodies' in school. With your heart and soul in it you never made it look like work Dai. All the best for the future and congratulations on your award!
My daughter has been attending Dai's Tatty classes at her pre school for ages. She always talked about them and how much she loved it. For her 5th birthday I found out that Dai does parties so booked her for Daisy's party. She was amazing, we had 16 kids from 3 to 9 and she kept them entertained and captivated for well over an hour, then they had a ball with party games after tea. Dai was a delight and seemed to really enjoy it. She included every child and even when there were a few tears, she engaged them again to join in and have fun. The kids loved it ( as did the watching parents ) I would not hesitate to recommend Tattys for classes or parties.. In fact I wish she did an older kids class so we could keep going. Thank you for making Daisy's birthday so special. Xxxxx
Dai, You are very special. My son has been crying a lot over the past few weeks and getting frustrated quickly. Since he attended your yoga class on Thursday, his behaviour has improved so much! I want to say thank you so very very much. He said that he feels much calmer xx
A Happy Mummy!
The most inspiring business parent IS Dai. She had a very difficult childhood and althought I won't go in any details, she could have easily gone off the rail with the challenges life threw at her from such an early age. She went on to have 2 gorgeous girls, to whom she is a loving, caring and involved parent. She started her business while a single mum and quickly became the one to watch on the network. Flexible working was the only option for her at this stage of her life and she florished this way. She is now the most successful franchisee of our network. But Dai doesn't only perform well, she is an amazing giver, and give everything she has to everyone in her life. She help us all, she inspire and motivate us all, and she makes everyone smile. She is the perfect example of how you can succeed in and enjoy your working life by taking charge and making it happen for yourself even if all the odds seem against you. I feel really lucky to know her, and I am really proud of her.
I cannot recommend Dai's tatty bumpkin classes enough! I was worried about my youngest daughter who, at 16 months old, was refusing to bear any weight on her legs or pull up to stand. I have watched on in amazement at the progress she has made since joining Dai's classes. After the very first class she was saying "up up" asking us to help her stand up and jump like she did in class. She is getting stronger and more confident in her movements as the days go by and I attribute that to all the things she is learning in class. Movement is encouraged in the children (and their mums!) in a fun and engaging way, so we almost don't realise how much of a work out we are getting! Dai is such a warm and friendly person and she has such a wonderful way with children. The classes are so much fun and really are the highlight of our week. Thanks Dai for all your help!

Tatty Bumpkin made my son's party a magical experience. Thank you so much, Dai! It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and have you at Matteo's party.
My son absolutely loved his Pirate themed Tatty Bumpkin birthday party. Dai is a natural with the children and made it all so easy.
