Yoga Therapy for adults & children, Tyne & Wear

Specialising in children & teens with diverse abilities and complex needs

Yoga Therapy is the application of yoga to promote health and wellbeing within a therapeutic relationship.

I will work alongside you to create a bespoke practice based on your unique combination of strengths and challenges.

As a Yoga Therapist I use the holistic approach of movement, breathwork, mindfulness and lifestyle practices, alongside goal setting & habit exploration.

Child & teen sessions may also include visualisation, games & activities that encourage sensory processing and integration.

Each week my daughter excitedly anticipated her sessions with Ella and afterwards, talked confidently about the practices she had learned. She even taught them to her younger 2 year old sister! She became more aware of her emotions and learned an abundance of techniques to help calm her body and mind, which she continues to refer to.

Yoga Therapy can empower you to release attachments, move through long standing conditions and provide you with the tools to discover and maintain balance day to day.

Yoga Therapy is complementary to other healthcare approaches and can support (but is not limited to) these areas:


Overall Wellbeing

Life processes such as pregnancy, postpartum, menopause, healthy ageing




Neurological & Developmental Conditions


One to One

Ella’s delivery and support is excellent. I am living with some health issues post breast cancer and I am a carer for my elderly mother.

I was struggling both mentally and physically.

The consultation process was holistic, calming and reassuring. Ella really listened to my particular issues/health concerns. She developed a daily practice for my individual needs.

I certainly feel healthier in body and mind from the restorative practice.

Many thanks for your expertise and guidance Ella.

About Me

I am a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), Yoga Teacher (CYT-500) and Children’s Yoga Teacher (CCYT) with a specialisation in working with children & teens with diverse abilities and complex needs.

My combination of training enables me to make the therapeutic benefits of yoga accessible to and inclusive of children and adults of all abilities.

I am able to work 1:1 with you or your child:

    in my garden studio

    in the comfort of your own home

    online via Zoom

    Within a school setting I offer:

    1:1 sessions for children & teens, including SEND interventions

    Specialised therapeutic group sessions for children, teens and staff

    Yoga classes for children, teens and staff

    My hope as a yoga therapist is to be a trusted guide, outside of yourself, to help you discover, reach and maintain your wellbeing goals.

    I look forward to sharing this journey with you in the hope that we may learn & grow together.

    I am now able to incorporate yoga therapy which is compatible with my lifestyle. This has significantly reduced my anxiety. Ella is very approachable and provides clear explanation of the yoga positions and their health benefits.
