kdyoga was founded in 2011 by Kelly Meadows and David Roughan
They believe strongly in the concept and practice of inclusion and are committed to bringing the benefits of yoga to all individuals.
kdyoga have years of experience working with diverse groups, such as those with Autism, ADD/ADHD, anxiety disorders, global developmental delay and other learning difficulties and additional needs.
We offer bespoke, individual yoga programmes that build body awareness and create a sense of empowerment for the student by educating them on how the yoga practice influences and benefits the body.
We also offer a variety of group classes that are modified to fit your individual needs.
Kelly and David are both trained to the high standards of the British Wheel of Yoga, and then combined this yoga training with their extensive experience and knowledge of working with young people with special educational needs (SEN).
Through their practice they have created a dialogue between the tenets of excellent yoga teaching and specialist SEN work that has raised their levels of expertise in both sectors and led to a highly nuanced and individualised approach to delivering yoga sessions to all children and adults in the home; classroom; after school setting; or organization. All people benefit from KDyoga’s approach.
In one of their most innovative approaches, KDyoga creatively combine classic yoga practice with sensory equipment that is traditionally used in the SEN classroom to help individuals move towards inner peace while increasing focus, strength and esteem.
“Kelly is a really engaging teacher. Her energy is infectious and she has so many fun ways of guiding people with learning disabilities through yoga. Highly recommended!”
“Kelly has a very unique and inspiring way to teach yoga, understanding all his special needs and anxieties but also clearly sees his strengths.
She instilled confidence, joy and love in every session and Luca started to become more secure within himself.”
“This is an activity that caregivers and patients can do together because everyone is doing the program together, caregivers have peace of mind to at least allow themselves to ‘let go’ and do some exercise.” – Support Worker
“All classes with Kelly are taught in a fun, friendly, supportive non-competitive environment where everyone is encouraged to practice safely at their own pace with their body just as it is.” – Arvindar
“Its wonderful to see him more happy and confident and incredibly Luca has developed more speech to communicate his feelings to us, so that we can slowly understand more about his inner hidden world, that was for a long time not accessible to us.
Luca and me are looking forward to every yoga session with Kelly-which is more then just yoga: its like a beautiful colourful rainbow that just makes you smile.” – Gabriela Benaglio
