Little Yogis is empowering children through an introduction to yoga and mindfulness practices.

Developed by an Ontario Certified Teacher and yoga teacher, our program combines mindfulness, breath awareness, movement and exercises that build flexibility and balance with curriculum connections, both formal and informal, to give your children a full, immersive experience.  All students will develop tools for relaxation and peacefulness all while having fun, laughing, moving their bodies, building friendships and learning to connect with themselves and the world around them in a deep, meaningful way.  Our program is crafted to help build resiliency, strengthen self-regulation and provide a sense of belonging and community for all students.

We believe consistency and repetition are necessary to learn the basics of yoga as well as the benefits of breathing and calming exercises. Our sessions run 4 - 8 weeks in length for afterschool programs and weekly/biweekly during the school day.

Graydon Hall Nursery Schools has had the pleasure of hosting Michelle Faber and the Little Yogis program beginning this past Autumn 2019.


The Little Yogis program has been implemented with the toddler and preschool age children in all seven Graydon Hall Nursery Schools locations on a bi-weekly basis. The program is dynamic and innovative and speaks to the collaboration of body, mind and soul with our children and staff. Michelle communicates effectively and is highly organized and professional.


Michelle has created a program that helps the children learn how to move their bodies in space while encouraging mindfulness and positivity. The children have exposure to new ideas and poses to strengthen and support their growth and development and to enhance their appreciation of Yoga.


Michelle Faber and the Little Yogis program would be an excellent addition to any holistic approach to teaching and shaping young minds and bodies.
