Many of our children are under daily pressures, such as social media, peer pressure, meeting specific academic targets, and sometimes difficulties in their home life. As teachers, it is partly our responsibility to support children’s emotional development in the classroom.

Hello and Welcome
My name is Katie, the founder and creator of Little Sunshine Mindfulness & Yoga. I have worked with children for over 20 years and within several childcare settings. My qualifications include NVQ Level 4 in Childcare & Education along with a Primary Teaching Degree with Early Years a specialism. I have also trained in Hatha Yoga, Beyoga children’s mindfulness/yoga and received a Mindfulness diploma.
My journey began when I started practicing yoga in 2011, I quickly began to realise how focusing on the breath during yoga and practicing meditation quietened my mind, developed my awareness, creativity and intuition. I became much calmer; it improved my resilience and positivity, and this had a huge impact on my overall wellbeing. This encouraged me to want to learn more, so I began reading inspirational books, and practicing meditation and mindfulness. As I began to develop my knowledge, I wanted to share my journey and experience with others.
I am extremely passionate about teaching mindfulness and meditation. It is evident that the younger we teach children how to deal with their emotions, the less children will suffer with insecurities and low self-esteem in later years. Together we can make a positive change!
