Hello I’m Rachel, your instructor and River Bear Yoga founder!

I am so glad you stopped by to learn more about who we are and what we do. It is my passionate belief that every child deserves to feel well in both body and mind, and so I created River Bear Yoga in service of just that!

River Bear Yoga was initially focused on training primary school teachers to deliver our syllabus, however it proved so popular that more and more parents were asking for a family version to do at home.

Hence this course! And it feels like now more than ever there is an urgent need for our children, and us as parents, to be equipped with fun and accessible tools to keep ourselves healthy and in balance.

I'm a qualified 200hr yoga teacher and I have taught yoga to children for eight years and drama for over fourteen. I'm also Mama to a very energetic 5 year old and a happy curious toddler.

River Bear Yoga is a response to the widely growing struggles which young people face today. Mental health is a serious issue which thankfully is being recognised and targeted within schools. A holistic approach is essential to help children grow. By giving children the tools to self regulate and healthily manage their emotions, feelings and fears we can help them combat anxiety and stress which makes growing up (in our technological age) a little easier.

Covid 19 has had a huge effect upon children's mental health so having these calming techniques and therapeutic games will be a huge help for children going forwards.

River Bear Yoga prizes itself for 'caring for the whole of the child.' By introducing yoga and mindfulness to children before adolescence we are giving them the tools which will serve them well into young adulthood and beyond.

Our programme is full of exercises which help bring children into direct contact with their inner and outer worlds. On the outside it is full of fun, expressive and imaginative games. While also introducing breath work, grounding and mindfulness.

It is my personal mission to make yoga, play and mindfulness incredibly accessible for children. Children's Wellbeing is at the heart of everything I create and I will continue to be an advocate for encouraging and uplifting children all around the world.
