Emma Horwill

 Emma trained in 2017 as a kids & family yoga teacher, going on to do a short course in mindfulness and completing her adult yoga teacher training in 2020.

She has worked in schools, offering after school clubs, yoga therapy sessions and events, run workshops for tweens and kids. 

Having a difficult childhood, suffering early loss and un-diagnosed depression and anxiety, then going through periods of self-help and counselling during my teens and into adulthood, led Emma to yoga and meditation.

Practicing yoga semi-regularly for many years, Emma became hooked on a weekly yoga class with an inspiring teacher. With a weekly practice and attending various retreats and classes, this enabled her to become calmer and more flexible, as well as being a very valuable asset to mental health.

Becoming a mother in 2012, Emma realised that she could bring the benefit of her practice into the lives of young people and their families.

After training with Yogakidz in 2017, Emma offered yoga and mindfulness to children and their families, including our young carers enabling them to find fun and effective ways to help to start exploring their inner world, both with their bodies and their minds. Encouraging strength, both mentally and physically, empowering the children, and parents, to become more confident and realise their innate sense of self-esteem.

Emma continues to bring mindful movement to the young carers and support them in any way that she can.
