Yoga and mindfulness for children, young people and their adults. Dedicated to providing a rich, stimulating and inclusive syllabus equipping stakeholders with practical tools to manage their physical, mental & emotional well-being.
Last week- on Saturday the 22nd of June 2019- to celebrate International Yoga Day for children Yogaworthit in partnership with Essence of Good Health Free Yoga ran a whole day of activities in Croydon from 10:15 to 16:00 aimed at children, young people and their adult or carer.
One of the workshop that it ran was a Mindfulness Slimetastic Lab for children and young people. During the workshop, children got to use their critical thinking and investigative skills to make, adjust and design the slime that would suit their sensory need and mood of the moment best by using colours, glitters, scent, and various textures including pompons.
During the session, all participants were focused, engaged, curious, enthusiastic, happy and peaceful.
They got to take the slime home to use as a tool to get themselves to a zone where their mind is free of worries and therefore feeling happy, relaxed and ready to learn.
Marsha- mother of two children aged between 3-9 years old- commented:
My two really enjoyed the slime workshop so that you very much Elodie. It was creative, messy and fun! Perfect for them.

My name is Elodie Ancel.
I have been working with children and young people for over 27 years now in France, Germany and the UK in various settings ranging from schools, summer camps, museums, theatres, royal palaces, libraries, housing associations, charities, festivals, GP surgery and dentist. (If you want to find out more about the projects I work on go to my LinkedIn page.)
I have done some outreach work, created immersive environments for children and their families, taught French, delivered arts and craft workshops, performed, lead speech and language booster group, taught and assisted in year 1 and 2.
All these experiences have been invaluable leading me inevitably towards Yoga and Mindfulness, which now trickle in everything I do and deliver.
I have just completed my 95-hour Yogabeez Children's Yoga Teacher Training Programme, MISP.begin course last April 2019 and will be completing my 300-hour Adult Yoga Teacher training programme in a French-based Ashram this August. I am also planning to continue my training with MISP to explore teaching children and young people mindfulness more in depth.
I am currently teaching in a South-East London primary school Yoga and Mindfulness to year 1 and 2 on a weekly basis and otherwise punctually across the school too.
Furthermore, I am running a weekly Saturday class in Croydon in partnership with Essence of Good Health Free Yoga for children aged 3-13 and their parent or carer.
Children and teens are so responsive that I am totally dedicated, committed and inspired to continue delivering more classes to give a platform for children to express themselves freely in a safe environment, gain confidence self esteem, respect in themselves and therefore respect of others making our world a better place.
