My name is Johanna Lovisa Andersson and I am the founder of YogaCubs. I am a yoga teacher with over 18 years experience of working with children.
Born and raised in the south of Sweden, I moved to London in 2004. Soon there after I started practicing yoga and quickly realized what unique and amazing qualities it has to offer. So much so that I eventually became a yoga teacher.
Ever since I finished my yoga teacher training in April 2010, I have been teaching weekly YogaCubs classes in the Kingston, Surbiton, Wimbledon, New Molden and Epsom area.
In addition to all my yoga training, I also have a degree in musical theatre/performing arts and an extensive experience as a nanny and carer for children with special needs. All this experience influences every YogaCubs class to bring mindfulness, body awareness and confidence to every child in an easy and playful way. When I teach tweens and teens I teach with the same playfulness (not story based) however I bring in more focus and understanding to why and what we are practising.
I am passionate to share yoga with children and teens to encourage their creative imagination, to give them a healthy and joyful ground to stand on for the coming years ahead.
