Founded by Christina, we are a group of dedicated adult and youth yoga teachers delivering classes in London and Sussex to adults, and in education settings. We have several years experience as adult and youth yoga teachers and absolutely love to work in our local communities.
At the heart of what we do, is a passion to nurture mental health and wellbeing for everyone we teach and to reach those who would not normally have access to yoga and mindfulness.
In education, we offer classes that connect young people and the staff that work with them, with themselves, with their minds and bodies and with each other. Yoga can provide wellbeing both physically and mentally for the youth of our future, helping all to better understand their bodies and minds. Yoga can help reduce anxiety, stress and mental health worries, to create an environment that is more aware, more connected, and both mentally and physically healthy.
At CK Yoga, we have a wealth of collective experience in teaching adults and young people alongside experience in working in the field of child counselling and child psychotherapy and with children with additional needs.
We have developed our own unique lesson plans and resources for use in education to support children.
CK Yoga teachers are all qualified yoga alliance accredited adult, teen and advanced children's yoga teachers. We also hold full liability insurance, updated enhanced CRB checks, up to date paediatric first aid and safeguarding training.

Teen Yoga (Secondary schools)
We provide yoga classes within secondary education settings and can offer a block/term of weekly classes, one-off workshops and classes tailored to specific needs and with specific themes relevant to this age group. Our teen classes create space for young people to just be, giving them time out from daily stresses and a space to tune in and move with sequencing, postures, partner postures, breathing and relaxation techniques. We aim to empower teens to be the drivers of their own well being.
Children's yoga (Primary schools)
We provide yoga classes within primary schools and can offer a block/term of weekly classes, one off workshops, breakfast, lunch or after-school clubs, special SEN/nurture sessions. Our primary school classes incorporate breathing and calming mindful exercises with yoga postures and sequences, yoga games and the all important relaxation - we give children space to move, breathe and relax.
Preschool yoga (Nurseries and Preschool settings)
We provide yoga sessions in EYFS settings and these classes are playful offering accessible story based yoga with the helping hand of our friend Meddy Teddy. All of our classes are carefully written and planned to engage young children providing a variety of fun and calming movement alongside relaxation and mindfulness.
Yoga for staff in education
We offer yoga and mindfulness to staff who work in education, providing space to unwind, relax and really focus on personal well being. We also deliver workshops for staff on how to deliver yoga breaks in the classroom.
