Firstly, a very warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting our website.
Hello, my name is Vanessa and I am the very proud Children’s Yoga Teacher, Educational Consultant and Director of our family-based business ‘Inner Bliss Kids Yoga’.
Our name ‘Inner Bliss Kids Yoga’ was chosen with the premise on ‘inner’ meaning ‘internal’ and ‘bliss’ symbolising ‘great joy, happiness and (a state of) delight’ and is reflected in our mission statement being to “empower and inspire children to discover their own inner strength, develop their self-confidence and create their own sense of calm.”
I live in the stunning beachside city of Wollongong on the NSW South Coast with my wonderful husband and our two beautiful and treasured children, being a gorgeous and creative 11 year old daughter and an active and energetic 8 year old son.
After 21 years’ experience as a Primary School Teacher and Early Childhood Teacher, I was on a constant and extensive search for a programme that not only encouraged strength, coordination, physical endurance, activity and exercise but would also impact children on a deeper level with a sense of increased self-confidence, empowerment, gratitude, focus, concentration, perseverance and self-love.
Everything I was looking for and more, fell into place for me in 2017 when I discovered and then trained as a children’s yoga teacher. My eyes were opened up to this avenue of overall enrichment that is achievable to children of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and needs.
I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to educate children of all ages in this ancient practice, so that each child can gain a sense of calm, peace and relaxation in their daily busy lives as well as learn vital life skills of how to live with kindness and compassion to all.
My certifications and qualifications include:
-Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood)
-Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood)
-Associate Diploma of Social Science (Child Studies)
-Certificate IV in Small Business Management
-Advanced Certificate in Nutrition and Health
-Certificate in Life Coaching
-Level 1 350 hour Yoga Teacher Certificate (My Health Yoga)
-Foundation Teacher Training (Children’s Yoga Teacher- Zenergy Yoga)
-Advanced Teacher Training (Children’s Yoga Teacher – Zenergy Yoga)
I am also currently completing an intensive 6-month Business Leadership Programme for yoga teachers.
My other hobbies and interests include spending time with my family and watching my children in all of their adventures, travelling, exploring new places, walking, going to the gym, candle making, art, jewellery making and creating new oil blends.
Thank you again for visiting our website. We are glad you found us.
Have a wonderful day!
