Find gratitude and joy in every day. Transform the challenging into a gift. Be compassionate during these times of anxiety and fear; lend a hand, a breath, your heart to those who need comfort, who feel deeply and for moments, at least, can see no light. Without the dark there would be no light. Without the rain there would be no rainbow. Without the mud there would be no lotus. Bloom where you're planted even if there is a little mud.

In 2020, it is almost 20 years since, the Children's Garden began bringing yoga to children and their families. Jennifer and Barb (Yoga Barb) Westgate, were the first 2 in Ontario and the 4th and 5th in Canada to be certified children's yoga facilitators, through YogaKids. Since that time they have both studied under many other renown experts in the field of children's yoga, health and well-being. Jennifer, a speech and language pathologist, a certified reflexology and Reiki practitioner and a student of Sonia Sumar (Yoga for the Special Child), brings a well rounded experience to all children, but especially to those with different abilities. Yoga Barb offers Metamorphosis, Reiki and Emotional Support through her private yoga programmes and during group classes upon request. Her background in behavioural sciences, mother, child care provider, certified parent educator, and now "Gran" to 4, have enhanced her natural ability to provide a nurturing environment to all who seek her guidance.
