What is Mini Me Yoga?

Mini Me Yoga was developed by Dr Kate Bartram-Brown with the aim of reaching more children than she could reach alone in her weekly yoga class. 

Mini Me Yoga aims to bring joy to the lives of children by empowering parents, grandparents & education providers & training them to deliver Mini Me Yoga's 15 minute, 7 Step program. 

No yoga experience is necessary to deliver this program. What's more you'll be set to start straight away after attending our 2 hour workshop - all the resources you need are included too!

Training in schools & nurseries

We can provide in house training to schools & nurseries if you would like to have all or some of your staff trained in one session. Prices of workshops are listed above. Should you wish to do more than one training in a session bundles can be applied. 

Why should my school or nursery do Mini Me Yoga Training?

1. Sustainability - once you have paid for the training your staff are ready and able to trach Mini me Yoga sessions in your school or nursery. This is much cheaper than paying someone to teach yoga at your estabiliment each week 

2. Flexibilty - with your staff trained and equipt with resources Mini Me Yoga can be implimented into your school or nursery's day any way you like.Thus making it much more flexible than a yoga teacher coming to you at lunch time or after school. Furthermore, if you are a Welsh medium school your staff will be able to deliver the sessions in Welsh, using the Welsh resources provided during your training. 

3. Mini Me Yoga meets many of the outcomes set out in the cirriculum & other guidelines. Click the links below to see how Mini Me Yoga meets these objectives.
