Updates From Past Students
Updated: Dec 23, 2019
Hi Skip,I hope you are well.I taught my first yoga class today, to a group of 7 children and their parents! It went really well and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you, obviously for the wonderful training but also for the reference you gave, which helped make it happen. I'm hoping they all come back next week! Thanks again,
Best wishes Camilla x

I hope that this email finds you well. I wanted to update you on my progress. I attended your 3 days' course last summer and have been teaching yoga to the children in school ever since. (Year R to Year 6) I taught it straight away so that I didn't forget anything. I have been teaching it as part of my PE and also as an 8am club. The children, teachers and parents all love it! I can't seem to get around the classes quick enough! My first lesson with Year R was last week and went well. I was a little apprehensive as I teach the older children but it was great!
I am enjoying teaching it so much that in September I hope to set up my own children's yoga company which I am really looking forward to. I will also continue as a classroom teacher here. I am hoping to come and do the teen yoga training with you at some point next year once things are underway.
Thank you for such amazing, inspirational training which has prompted me to consider a different direction. I am always referring to the manual and my notes from the course. The storyos are taking sometime to learn but I am getting there. I think that yoga and mindfulness is so important for our children and I have had so much positive feedback from them. The lavender eye pillows are a hit too. The children are so busy and they really appreciate some time to have a sense of calm.
Thank you once again. I have subscribed to your website so I keep up with your blog and emails.
