Hello and welcome!
I am Emma and I am the founder of Peaceful Possums Yoga. I am a qualified and passionate children's yoga and mindfulness teacher. I am also a primary school teacher (specialising in Early Years Education) with many years teaching children from aged 6 months – 12+ years in Japan, Australia and the UK.
I have practiced yoga myself for over 20 years. I have always felt that when I have yoga in my life I am much better equipped to manage all that life has to throw at me, especially being a parent of two young children. My children love doing yoga with me at home and in my classes and often 'assist me' teaching in my classes and workshops, much to the amusement of the families who are joining me. I love having that special time with them as it helps us to further develop our bond and escape from the busyness of everyday life.
Whilst teaching in primary schools many years ago, I decided to incorporate some yoga into my classrooms. I found it had such a positive effect on the children that it eventually led to me train to become a children’s yoga teacher during the pandemic in 2020 so that I could focus on bringing all the benefits from yoga I have discovered to children and their families. And so this is where I am right now...bringing yoga and mindfulness to families in Newark-on-Trent and the surrounding areas.
I would love to have you come and join in the fun and adventure of children's yoga and mindfulness with PPY! What are you waiting for?! Step into the magical and nurturing world of yoga to support your child's future physical, social, emotional and mental health today. I can't wait to meet you and your family.
