Suman Virdi Batra
Kids Yoga & Mindfulness Coach
Suman Virdi Batra is a registered children’s yoga teacher and mindfulness coach. She has a passion for incorporating the path of yoga into all walks of life. Suman has been trained directly under Teressa Ascencia, who has taught more than 5000 hours of yoga over the span of 25 years in many countries, working with children all over the world. The Ministry of Education in Canada highly recommends her programme “yoga in your school”. Suman has a passion for children and believes in the importance of practicing mindfulness, compassion and gratitude from an early age with the vision of leading to a more positive community and world. As a mother of a school aged child herself, she knows very well the stresses on students in India and wishes to reduce or eliminate these tensions by incorporating mindfulness programmes into schools throughout India. Having a master degree in communication studies, she has a vision of creating a model, which builds a culture where positive behavior and developing a true self, is taught. A model which is embedded across the whole school because schools are now seen as institutions where their role extends beyond academic competence to further preparing the “whole child”. Happiness and success are defined by each of us, and the source of both lies within. Based on a rich inner understanding and with our support, our children will be empowered to create the condition for their own thriving. The next generation of leaders is following our lead, and a lot depends on how we choose to lead as parents and educators.
