Playful dancing with your family/ your loved ones from experienced yoga teacher and dancing freedom facilitator Sophie.


This review from a parent gives an idea of what you are coming to. (Understood that this is dependent on how you are, how your children are in each moment!)

"Hi Sophie, thanks so much for today. I could've easily cried with happiness when we shared how we all found the workshop! It's not often that all 4 of us can do something family orientated on a weekend because of my husband's shifts. We all shared wonderful moments with our girls and could give each of them some 1:1 time too. My eldest has a highly sensitive personality & you gently enabled her to push herself out of her comfort zone (including loud music) with your enthusiasm & warmth. I could tell you were aware of her reactions & responded sensitively. It really helped her that we were the 1st 1s there so she could engage with you & the space. My youngest was delighted with you & with the workshop & loved playing with everyone too! We all loved the playful dancing as well as the relaxation elements & the whole morning was paced really well. It suited all ages, which was wonderful & really inclusive. We'll definitely be back in July! Thank you so much for inspiring new ways for us to reconnect as a family & 1:1." Tamsin - Frome

Sophie Bolton worked for us in the capacity of children's guide, and leprachaun!, at a birthday party organised for an individual of high net worth. This event ran across a four day duration and it was the client's request that we have a character actor befriend and entertain the children for the duration.  It was a very difficult role and of the utmost importance to the success of our event.  Sophie was exceptional. She created a truly believable and lovable character. Her rapport with the children was instantaneous. The parents were immediately comfortable that their children were is good hands. Sophie was in demand from the moment the clients arrived to the moment that they left.  So successful was her performance that we had to turn down the clients requests, on a number of occasions, or she would have been working from 8am to 9pm without a break! The children simply loved her.  Sophie was a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate in recommending her to any event organiser, casting director or other employer; she is creative, talented, reliable and just lovely to have around. I look forward very much to working with her again in the near future.

Yogatails

Holiday Workshops and Festivals

 

Yogatails on offer for Children's parties and festivals

Exceedingly entertaining birthday parties and events for 4 - 7 year olds.

Lucy and Sophie have collaborated to bring yoga, dance and drama to children through adventures stories and on the spot fun! Sessions last for one hour and give time for the imagination to run free expressed through the body, promoting body awareness and creative thinking.

YogatailsEveningpost.jpgThe stories come in a number of different themes, some based on myths and fairytales. Funky World children's tunes are used to bring the stories more to life and are impossible not to find infectious! Parent and carers are always encouraged to join in - remember you're not yet an embarrassment - you can be the big kid too!

Feel free to call Sophie - 07903 342 652 with any particular requirements

Past events include:

Camp Bestival 2011
