‘We aim to support a healthy, happy mind by offering moments of calm, kindness and fun in our busy world.’
Founder of Calm Skies.
Hi, I’m Carly, primary school teacher, yoga instructor, mindfulness teacher and general wellness enthusiast within Hampshire.
My core motivation for creating Calm Skies is to provide engaging sessions that offer key skills and experiences so young people can maintain a healthy, happy mind and body.
‘From my many years of being a primary school teacher, I wanted to create a pre-emptive approach to our young people’s mental well-being. With 3 children in every classroom experiencing some kind of mental health issue, I was extremely motivated to create a program that equips our younger generation with the tools to take away and use daily. Through both yoga and mindfulness, children are taken on an exciting journey of self-awareness, curiosity and emotional understanding. By creating a safe, calm and happy place, they can enjoy the benefits of physical movement, imagination, empathy as well as lots of practical tools to use through day-to-day life.”
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

Wow! What a wonderful, child-friendly experience for the kids. Totally loved it! Freya loved the surfboard pose, Freddie loved the picnic. Well done Carly! Can’t wait for the next one!
Isla loved the yoga session and can’t wait to do it again. Carly was amazing with all the kids, capturing their attention the whole way through.
I loved our yoga sea adventure.
“Thank you for coming into Twiggs Lane Pre-School. The session was amazing and adapted well to the different groups of children. The adventure was great and we would love to see you again.”
I have had an awesome time doing yoga and an amazing adventure. It was so fun, I especially liked the shark pose.
A fantastic afternoon, Rory and Sammy really enjoyed it. All the children were captivated by you Carly, amazing to watch. All the children seemed really relaxed afterwards. I would hugely recommend Calm Skies. Thank you so much Carly.
I really enjoyed the yoga. The picnic pose was my favourite.
“Thank you so much for our workshops. The children were buzzing afterwards and were keen to show off their favourite poses from the session. It was so good to take some time to slow things down a bit after the usual busy-ness of the school day. We will certainly be adopting the ‘5 finger breathing’ technique in the classroom more. Thank you again and we do hope to see you again soon.”
“Carly, thanks for a lovely afternoon. The session was brilliant, easy to follow & very engaging for youngsters. William particularly liked opening the chest!”
Thanks so much! This was a brilliant yoga session and Carly made it really fun by making it an adventure instead of just boring yoga poses. It was awesome!
What a brilliant activity. William loved it as it was so child-focused and friendly – perfectly judged. He was happy to follow all the instructions and do the whole activity, which isn’t always the case! So lovely to watch children so interested and involved. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
Brilliant afternoon, Mila really enjoyed it. The kids were all really focused and trying all the poses. Mila liked being a tree! I think it is a great idea and would love to come again. Thank you Carly.
