Description:

Hi, I'm Carine. I'm a "former" psychologist, specialising among other things in child psychology. I started my career in Belgium working for various social services and as a private counselor mainly working with children and their families.
I was a member of a Drama club for 12 years while living in Belgium which gave me a taste for teaching group activities. I undertook various drama and art-therapy short courses that gave me tools to use in my role as a psychologist in Belgium.
Without knowing it, through my different trainings, I was already incorporating mindfulness and yoga techniques in my professional practice (I remembered learning and teaching the Tree pose as a concentration technique in Drama).
In 2006, I moved to Ireland and started to work in a daycare nursery with children from birth to 5 years. This is where I discovered the Montessori education.
When I was pregnant with my first child, I attended some pregnancy yoga classes and I remember that it was the only time during the week when I was able to focus solely on myself and on my body. Those classes were my first encounter with yoga and I felt straight away that it was good for me.

In December 2007 after having my first child, I started to read more about the Montessori education from birth.

I gained a Montessori diploma in 2009 and went back to work in a Montessori classroom until I moved to the UK in May 2011. On the side, I was practicing yoga on and off.
In London, I ran successfully for 3 years a Montessori based parents and toddler group then after relocation to the Bedfordshire, I opened another parents and toddlers group in Bedford that I ran for around 6 months.
Then I became the manager and Montessori lead teacher of a Montessori preschool near Huntingdon for nearly 2 years. It's there that I started to incorporate yoga and mindfulness activities with the children.

At the same time, as a parent, I was looking for a yoga class in Sandy or in Biggleswade for my own child. Frustrated that I couldn't find anything nearby enough, I started to practice yoga with my own children. Observing the benefits on my own children and on the children at school, I decided to train myself in order to provide classes to the local families and children around Sandy, Biggleswade, Bedford, Letchworth and Hitchin. I go now even to Stevenage, St-Neots, and Huntingdon.

I have trained with Yogabeez. It's a course that blends Yoga, Mindfulness and Montessori principles to educate the Whole Child from 2 to 15 years old.
It's fully recognized by the Yoga alliance.
I'm fully insured, DBS checked, I've hold a up to date pediatric first aid certificate and I'm also trained in Child protection.

I've trained in mindfulness with the Buddhism Centre of Letchworth and I'm also training with CamYoga.
