Christiane Kerr


Christiane has been practising yoga since 1995 and qualified as a yoga teacher in 2003. Her original training was with Sivananda Yoga and she went on to complete a two year, 550 hour training with the BWY accredited, London Yoga Teacher Training Group.

Like most yogis she has continued to study over the years completing courses in restorative yoga and yoga nidra.

In 2014 she qualified as a Mindfulness Teacher (MBSR/MBCT) with the Centre for Research and Mindfulness Practice at Bangor University. She follows the good practice guidelines set out by the Mindfulness Network.

She has been running courses at the Mindfulness Project in Central London since 2015 in both general Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction as well as courses and workshops for parents.

Whilst she loves teaching to all ages, she is passionate about introducing yoga and mindfulness to children and teens as early as possible, giving them a valuable skill that can help them navigate through life's inevitable ups and downs. She also loves the playfulness and creativity of teaching the young.

"Highly Recommend"


I would highly recommend this course as it covers everything you need to teach yoga to children and more.


The resources are excellent. The handbooks and printed information are so comprehensive and the videos of children's classes on Teachable compliment all the material and teaching from the live sessions.


The combination of the livestream and pre-recorded sessions works really well.

"Brainstorming Ideas & Games."

The module was set out really well and though there was a lot of information in each section, it never felt overwhelming. Christiane has a real depth of knowledge and experience and everyone is listened to.

"Great Anatomy Section for Teens."

I found the developmental stages for each age group really interesting and it also gave me more confidence in choosing asanas and activities to use. I don't have much experience of working with children so found the class management session really helpful too. Kelly F.


"Highly Recommend."

I have attended various specialist yoga courses and I think this truly is the most practical, empowering and comprehensive. There was so much content covered in an easy to digest style.
