Svarna Singh

Thank you so much for being an instrument of change and inspiration in my life. The course was absolutely wonderful, and I'm grateful I had the chance to be a part of it. You're a fantastic teacher, and a true voice of wisdom. I found the course content to flow so intuitively, and the balance between theory and practical was spot-on. The magic that happens when YOU bring together and facilitate people who are passionate about children's yoga just could not have been found anywhere else and that alone is enough reason to know I'd come back to do other courses you might run. Every time I teach a class I go through all the notes for that particular module - and the learning and great memories all come flooding back. So thank you for creating such wonderful resources that aid our learning long after the course is over. Looking forward to reading your first published book one day :-) January 2016 - Svarna Singh - Graduate of Full 95-hr Training

The power to go beyond the childrens training, the training has served me in my teaching (meaning academics not yoga) and even in my life. It helped me with my practise to take a different vision of it. Everything was done in a very intelligent way. Thank you again Jenny!

This is the second training course I've done with Jenny and she is magnificent once again! Her classes are interactive, engaging, informative, challenging and fun! I had a feeling of bliss, power and joy leaving her classroom each time. The amount of work and time Jenny has put into this training course is amazing. The course materials comprise of a comprehensive training manual, class plans, pose pack and games guide. These information and guides are very well thought through and help us get started as a children's yoga teacher straight away.

Doing Yoga for sports and leisure was something new and different to me, but after the first session I felt really relaxed and calm, especially at a period of time where I was stressed out about exams. Every lesson was unique with different skill building activities, which made the session really enjoyable. Personally, I really liked the group and paired activities, such as the paired yoga poses and when we had to figure out how to unwind our arms. I enjoyed this a lot, because it was fun and a time for us to bond as friends and peers, and this was also evident as we grew closer as a group after every session. I found myself feeling more connected to the others, as yoga was a time for all of us to reflect about our thoughts and feelings, which was really helpful during the end of the year, when we had our exams. This was one of many reasons why I continued to do yoga in the term after that. Also, what I like was that the Yoga instructor really listen to us, in terms of what we were feeling that day, and she came up with activities that really suited our mood. The session may have been a place to relax, but it was also a place where I could improve on my flexibility and strength, and I learnt a lot about my body. From the 2 terms, I have found a new interest in Yoga, and I can see myself doing it in the future.Theres nothing like an inspirational quote to get readers in the mood. Y12 Student
