YOGA ANd MEDITATION FOR TODDLERS TO TEENS

Happy Little Yogi was founded in 2009 by Jane Oppegaard (Yoga Jane) to introduce children to yoga at an early age in a fun and playful way, giving them the resources to carry with them throughout their life.

Jane started to practice Kundalini Yoga in 1999, liking the balance that it created from physical exercise to clearing and calming the mind through meditation and sound. She discovered this form of yoga whilst researching help for her ongoing Scoliosis issues. Because the effects improved her posture and mobility beyond what she could ever imagine, she became a qualified Kundalini Yoga teacher in 2008, training at the Amrit Nam Sarovar School and continued her training with Gurmukh Kaur in the USA.

Her desire to teach yoga to children led to her qualifying in Child Play Yoga with Gurudass Kaur in 2009 and receiving a further qualification with the Radiant Child School in 2010.

Jane’s yoga classes, designed especially for children of all ages and ability, introduces them to this ancient philosophy in a fun way through yoga, dance, movement, sound, balance, co-ordination, memory, play, story-telling and relaxation. Her classes and holiday clubs that she runs throughout the year are always hugely popular, with many children returning time and time again, year on year.

Her aim is to create healthy, happy, flexible, calm, well balanced children through the medium of playful yoga, supporting the development of the whole child and creating a happy, healthy mind and body. In todays society, it has become second nature to reach out and find happiness outside of us, through various different mediums, but Happy Little Yogi brings it back to finding happiness within.
