Welcome to Joyful Hearts, advocate & supporter of:
Passionate about prioritising the health and wellbeing of all young people in an educational setting, Joyful Hearts offers somatic curriculum-driven, Mindful Yoga to all young people (aged 4-21 years) attending schools in the Marlow & neighbouring areas.

What makes Joyful Hearts Mindful Yoga unique is the educational content I weave into each of my yoga lessons, as a certified Children & Teens Yoga Therapist for anatomy, physiology, socio-psychology and neuroscience.
Teaching a young person why a deeper awareness of mind-body is important for self-regulation; 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 young people to embody the full benefits of a regular Mindful Yoga practice for optimal well-being.
Students are encouraged to play to their strengths and hone their individual Multiple Intelligences (that are innate in all of us) through the integration of music, art, maths, science, literacy and nature.
In the true sense of 'yoga' (to 'unite') Joyful Hearts yoga lessons nurture the growing needs of the physical, mental (intellectual), emotional, social and even spiritual wellbeing for all young people.
Because children and teens learn so much more when they feel relaxed and happy, every Joyful Hearts class aims to be fun and wholeheartedly experiential! My mission for Joyful Hearts is to provide a safe and comfortable space for each young person in my care, to meet them where they are, and awaken their inner spirit.
With regular practice, Mindful Yoga leads young people to feel:
