Program for parents & educators

The content of the Teen Wellbeing program is based on many years teaching children and young adults dance, yoga, meditation techniques, life skills and the tools for mental and emotional wellbeing through camps, classes, school wellbeing programs and family workshops.

Workshops based on this program have been created for Parents, Teachers and social workers to help them support the children they care for- check out The Creative Wellbeing Program for details on this six week course for adults.

So what did parents and teachers have to say after completing this course: 

This course exceeded my expectations. The breadth, depth and gentleness of the exercises made them easy to translate into every day teaching with all ages and capabilities! Laura also incorporated lots of self- care practices along the way….something very much appreciated!”

Michelle – Primary School Teacher

“A super programme with lots of useful information, very practical with a deep dive into the science behind each of the practices. For anyone working in a supportive role with children, this essential programme offers practical guidance on how to support children and equip them with the tools needed to thrive in these uncertain times.”
