Company Overview

Tatty Bumpkin offers a bendy, giggly world for clever minds and strong bodies. It was set up in 2004 to deliver a creative and ethical developmental programme for babies and children.

Based on yoga and developed by music educationalists, paediatric physiotherapists and experienced yoga teachers, Tatty Bumpkin's activity classes are loved for their innovative approach to childhood development and parents are often surprised to rediscover their own inner child! The classes are:

- Bendy – inspired by yoga
- Giggly – creative, through our own stories and music
- Clever – aligned to the Early Years curriculum
- Strong – help develop inner strength too with mindfulness and relaxation
