Yoga Therapy


Vikki Howard
 Bsc Hons. Occupational Therapy Diploma in Holistic Therapies
Yoga Teacher for Children

Yoga Therapy Services: 

Yoga can make a wonderful and enjoyable, therapy for children.

Vikki sees children 1 to 1 for yoga therapy.  She creates a peaceful space for children to feel comfortable and establish a sense of calm. 

Planned entirely for the child’s individual needs, sessions are playful and usually include:

  • Yoga postures – for physical strength and flexibility, muscle tone, balance, alignment and body awareness;
  • Breathing practices – learning breathing techniques to ease feelings of frustration, anger or anxiety and build upon concentration and mindfulness;
  • Relaxation - using gentle guided visualisation to help the child develop the ability to relax and release, and to find the peaceful place inside. Practicing relaxation can help enrich the quality of sleep.

Yoga can help to develop fine and gross motor skills, coordination and proprioception, as well as create a sense of mental and emotional wellbeing.

Cost - £50 per hour.

 About Vikki:

Vikki has been practicing yoga all of her adult life. Whilst working as an Occupational Therapist she discovered that yoga makes a wonderful therapeutic tool.

Seeing how her own children also benefited from practicing yoga with her, she decided to train as a Yoga Teacher for Children.

Since then she has run children’s classes in a yoga studio, and also group and individual sessions within schools.

Her experience in Occupational Therapy, and also Holistic Therapies including massage, reflexology and aromatherapy, has enabled her to develop yoga therapy with an holistic blend of physical postures, breathwork and mindfulness; promoting emotional regulation and self-understanding.

She really enjoys seeing children apply the practices to their everyday lives and develop a set of techniques that makes a real difference to their physical and emotional wellbeing.
