 What makes Joyful Hearts Wellness programmes unique and necessary for forward-thinking schools is the educational content I weave into my lessons. As a Teens Yoga Therapist, Wellness Coach for Yoga in Sports & Mental Health First Aider for Youth, I am certified in anatomy, physiology, socio-psychology and neuroscience; teaching why a deeper awareness of mind-body is important for self-regulation in adult life; or demonstrating how to follow the breath moment by moment during a yoga flow to rebalance the nervous system; are just two examples of the ways I encourage students to embody the full benefits of a regular Mindful Yoga practice for optimal well-being. The physical 'yoga' postures being just 1 component of the Wellness programmes I design for schools. 

Students are encouraged to play to their strengths and hone their individual Multiple Intelligences (innate in all of us) during their Mindful Yoga practice on the mat, bringing to life their appreciation of music, art, maths, science, literacy and nature in pioneering of ways.

 In the true sense of the word 'yoga' which literally means to 'unite', Joyful Hearts nurtures the neuroplasticity of the brain to enhance the student's physical, mental (intellectual), emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing; empowering them to self-direct their Wellness journey.

And because children and teenage brains have the capacity to process more information when they are happy and relaxed, every Joyful Hearts class is wholeheartedly experiential, they learn how to receive feedback from postures and mental alertness from mindful processing.

My mission for Joyful Hearts is to offer safe haven in an educational setting, to meet young people exactly where they are as they grow; awakening their inner spirit for a fuller, more purposeful life.
