My name is Jill and I’m your YogaPupz licensee and instructor for Chester-le-Street (Pelton Community Centre), Gateshead (Mothercare and Farmhouse Inn’s Valley Farm), and Washington (Harraton Community Centre). I teach baby yoga (6/8 weeks to actively crawling) and toddler yoga (mobile babies to approx. 36 months) in these areas.
My son Harry was born July 2017. I started going to baby massage with Sarah, Founder and Owner of YogaPupz, when Harry was 3 weeks old. We progressed on to baby yoga a few weeks later. Harry and I both loved it! I appreciated the 1-2-1 bonding time with Harry, enjoyed the socialisation with other parents, and soon enough began to see the benefits of baby yoga in Harry’s development first hand. Eager to learn more I started my baby yoga teacher training and realised that in addition to everything else my baby son had introduced me to a new career. I made the decision to commit to YogaPupz and baby/kids yoga as a new occupation and I absolutely love it!
I am fully certified, have enhanced DBS, safeguard training, paediatric first aid, public liability insurance and bags of passion. It’s important to me that both you and your baby enjoy every class and begin to see the benefits of yoga during the course of a term.
My son continues to come to toddler yoga now he’s on the move – he continues to enjoy yoga and continues to learn through it whilst having lots of fun. I’d encourage you to try a class with your baby or toddler. I love working with children, you as their parent/guardian, and sharing the joy of kids yoga with you in our fantastic region!
