Hi! My name is Laura! I am a manual osteopath, movement specialist, and mother of two adorable little humans, ages 7 & 5!

I used to work with a team of exceptional health practitioners at a clinic call Umana Health in Toronto. Our motto was Prevent Injury, Promote Health and Inspire Life Long Health and Wellness. I have always practiced with this as my philosophy.

Within my manual practice I was exposed to the enormous impact that stresses and challenges in our lives have on our bodies. It showed up as pain, discomfort, headaches, digestive issues, symptoms of anxiety and depression, and overactive nervous systems.

When my children started showing some of these same symptoms, it was a no brainer that kids can benefit from the same coping strategies, actives and mental health awareness as adults do.

I am so excited to expand my knowledge and be part of the Little Yogis Community.

I feel strongly that my exposure and experience within the healthcare system has provided me with even more insight to the connection between the mind and body.

I look forward to continuing to applying the motto of Prevent, Promote and Inspire to young members of our community. Helping to them to improve their physical, mental, and emotional health through Little Yogis Academy!

Healthy Vibes Only,

My name is Amy Parsons. Mother to three kiddos, family based photographer, Islander, and yoga teacher! 

I completed my first yoga training with Modo Yoga in Montreal in the fall of 2010 and went on to do my Modo Flow training in Halifax a few years later. I taught full time for several years before changing directions and operating a successful photography business here on the Island. I am a people person and feel as though my background of teaching yoga, and photographing families with young children will serve me well in this new adventure. I've been told that I make my clients/students feel comfortable and I can't wait to bring that skill with me to Little Yogis. 

While I absolutely LOVE photographing all of the beautiful babies and families on PEI (and will continue to do so), I look forward to getting back to my roots in the yoga community. The mental health crisis is real, and I see symptoms within my own family which has led me here! Children need to learn to move their bodies, self regulate, and be mindful of their thoughts/actions. I strongly believe that our children model OUR behaviour and I want to be the change within my own family. I can't wait to help Island kiddos develop healthier habits and mindfulness with the incredible Little Yogis/Busy Minds program.
