A New Course with

Sophie Bickerdike

Meet the Course Teachers


Sophie Bickerdike is Founder and teacher of Go Yoga, and has been teaching yoga for over 13 years.  She is Principal of Go Yoga Training School,  a Senior Yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance and a Yoga Elder with the IYN. 

Sophie also brings her experience as a qualified Secondary School teacher and actress  into  the Children's Yoga training course. 



Helen Lehan is a qualified Primary School teacher and Children's yoga instructor. She has a passion for teaching creative, fun classes which foster a health happy child, through the discovery of their own individuality and resilience. Helen is also a Philosophy for Children practioner and works in partnership with schools training teachers. 

"I trained to be a children’s yoga instructor with Helen and Sophie a year ago and I am so happy that I did. In all honesty, the day of the first training I was in a bit of a rut feeling frustrated that although I went into teaching to really make a difference, I didn’t feel I was. I felt stressed out and frustrated that the children in my care, mainly with special educational needs were like fishes being made to climb trees. (Don’t know the quote but its spot on)

I literally got goosebumps when I saw the course advertised in my twitter feed and knew I was meant to do it. I am an absolute fidget and I am an adult so I can understand children’s desire to move and express, children who might benefit kept popping into my mind. On the actual day, however, my childcare fell through and I felt I needed to cancel but Sophie was so accommodating and I ended up bringing my two children. I can honestly say these two ladies are all about making people feel good and creating beautiful experiences for children."

Last Word

Mummy: how does yoga with Helen make you feel?
Oliver: Happy! (I wish I could convey the excitement with which this was said) 
Mummy: what do you enjoy most about our yoga classes?
Oliver: It makes me feel happy to find animals.

It has been such a pleasure to join Helen’s class. I love how she balances the calmness and education of yoga with excitement and surprise.   It warms my heart to hear that there is now a host of teachers preparing to filter this out to schools.
