“Our child really enjoyed this class. He often voluntarily dances joyfully at home now and says, while laughing, that he is dancing like a frog!“

"What a pleasure it has been having Ms Masha from Mind Moves work with our Preschool and Elementary students this year. Her classes are well paced, engaging and much loved by the children. She incorporates music, movement and mindfulness in way that draws the children in and leaves them feeling relaxed and refreshed."
