EARLY INTERVENTION WORKS – Available for 1 to 1 or small group interventions
A message from the Headteacher at Overchurch Juniors.
Yoga therapy sessions are designed for any children who may be struggling with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, suicidal ideation and self harm, as well as those struggling with emotional and behavioural regulation.
These 1 to 1 or small group sessions support young people by providing tools and strategies to help them become more self aware and better able to recognise, manage and cope with their emotions.
Yoga therapy has been used very successfully with children who could no longer access the classroom environment or even school.

Yoga is the golden thread through my son’s life. During yoga with Julie, he is developing his coordination, balance and strength. He is at his most focused when working with Julie. Her calming nature and skilful communication balance my son’s energy and help him to centre.
It is the time in the week that belongs to him and where he is just a regular boy enjoying yoga. We still smile with great joy when we see him participating fully and independently. My son is 14 years old and happens to have Down’s Syndrome.
