The Mother Hub Meets: Nicola Chantler

The Mother Hub Meets: Nicola Chantler

Today on the Mother Hub Meets we're chatting Nicola Chantler - founder of the Chelmsford-based Little Yoga Studio. We first heard about Nicola's wonderful yoga classes for kids at the very start of our Mother Hub journey just over a year ago. We had been researching women in business in Essex and loved Nicola's concept of a yoga studio dedicated entirely to children. Her career journey is truly inspiring - formerly an editor at Express Newspapers and Yahoo!, Nicola set up the Little Yoga Studio after being made redundant and spotting a big gap in the market... and the rest is history! We're so happy to finally be sharing Nicola's story, along with her top tips for encouraging mindfulness in children.

As "project bathroom" rears it's ugly (*read pricey) head, I'm hoping the process of writing a blog post about one of the rooms we have completed will serve as a reminder that, despite the looming projects, we really have come a long way to making this place look and feel like our home. These pics are not the best quality and you'll see a few rogue cables and a grey fur ball named Henry in their midst..but hey, we did promise you real home projects..
