About Lydia

Lydia is a women and children’s wellness coach , yoga therapist and mum to wild and wonderful 5 year old boy.

Lydia has been working with children in a variety of ways more or less all her life: she grew up helping her mum work with kids in orphanages in Nepal, volunteered as a special needs assistant through her schooling and then even went on to work as a Mary Poppins style super nanny! She has trained in children’s yoga and yoga for children with additional needs and developmental delays, written and taught a kids yoga teacher training course and now also works in schools giving primary teachers the tools to bring yoga and wellness techniques into the classroom to make it a more happy and inclusive environment for all.

Since becoming a mum, lydia has made it a mission to try to share her love of healthy food and baking with her son. They bake together everyday and grow food for his lunchboxes in their garden. She is part of the parents jury on the Irish heart foundations “ no junk food marketing for kids” campaign and passionately believes that we have a duty to our little people to spread the message that what we put into our bodies determines how we feel; the cleaner and healthier the better.

Lydia shares her stories of baking with her son on Instagram and due to the overwhelming feedback from other mums looking to learn ways to bake quick, simple, healthy and cheap recipes with their children, for lunch boxes, that they will actually eat, she has developed this series of workshops.
