Created from my own childhood trauma to give children the tools I never had growing up…

My story begins at Uzenmyethu child care facility, GuGulethu Township, Cape Town, South Africa. In the South African nucleus of crime, poverty, and riots, the Accelerated growing need for the children to learn life skills that could extend beyond the school walls and promote health in other areas of their life.

Jeanne Welsh is a leader in the field of Children’s yoga education. Jeanne champions the efficacy of innovative, evidence-based yoga programs for schools to establish lifelong foundations for student’s fitness, wellness, and productivity. Over the past decade, Jeanne has worked closely with educators, health professionals, and parents to enrich school communities with yoga tools to more authentically and effectively teach to their students and children. A pioneer of yoga education, Jeanne is also the founder of Wellness for Kids in Cape Town South Africa, a company that creates sustainable yoga programs for Cape Town schools. When not at home in Bali, you can find Jeanne leading trainings and retreats, empowering educators and to integrate yoga into schools across Europe, Asia, and South Africa.

Fuelled by the success of this whole school yoga and mindfulness implementation program, I have evolved with the intention to reach more schools, more educators, more parents, and more students. Together, we are changing education through the practice of mindfulness and yoga.
